Hearty, crunchy salads seem to be more satisfying in the winter, especially after a long holiday season of rich foods. Sweet SugarBee® apples make an ideal match for the green flavors of the cabbage in this fresh salad. Serve this as a side dish with grilled or roasted meats or top with grilled chicken for a healthy meal on its own.
