Ingredients

  • 1 Tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1 small yellow onion, peeled and sliced
  • 2 medium Granny Smith apples, sliced into 1/2-inch sticks, about 3 3/4 cups
  • 1/2 small head of cabbage, shredded (about 4 cups)
  • 1 Cup shredded carrots
  • 1/2 Cup golden raisins
  • 1 Cup apple cider
  • 1/2 Cup chopped walnuts
  • 1/4 Cup Kretschmer Honey Crunch Wheat Germ
  • 2 Tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 1/2 Teaspoon lemon zest
  • 1/2 Teaspoon salt

Directions

In a heavy-bottomed 10-inch skillet, heat the oil until shimmering. Add the onions and sauté over medium heat until golden brown, 3 to 5 minutes.

Mix in the apples, cabbage, carrots, and raisins. Stir to combine. Pour in the apple cider. Cover and cook over medium heat just until cabbage is wilted, 5 to 7 minutes. Remove from the heat and mix in the walnuts, wheat germ, lemon juice, zest, and salt. Allow the salad to sit for 5 minutes before serving to absorb some of the liquid.

Cabbage Shopping Tip

Look for vegetables that are firm and bright in color – avoid those that are wilted or have wrinkled skins, which are signs of age and damage.

Cabbage Cooking Tip

Vegetables should typically be cooked as quickly as possible, as they can become bland and mushy, and lose vitamins and minerals.
