This salad comes from Jodie, the real salad-maker in our family. Jodie often makes this as a complement to our main meals. This traditional family favourite has been passed on through the generations and enjoyed by our family for many years.
In a small bowl, whisk all dressing ingredients together. In a separate large bowl, combine shredded red cabbage with cranberries and the onion. Gradually add sufficient dressing and mix in well so dressing coats salad evenly without drowning it. Add pecans and toss gently. Serve.
Tips from the author
Add pecans and dressing just before serving to ensure the salad stays crunchy and crisp. This salad is perfect as a starter or as an accompaniment to a main and can be shared amongst four.
