Twice a year I go on retreat up to the mountains. I have the privlege of preparing dinner for 75 - 85 people on a Saturday night. I have been doing this for a number of years and I am always searching for something a little different. I made this dish on a lark and man oh man did everybody love it. What a great combination of ingredients that resulted in a uniquely flavored dish and the visual appeal was second to none. My friends just raved about it and it literally was all gone in a number of minutes. Thanks for the great dish. P.S. I am preparing it again today for a Pittsburgh Steeler party at a friends.

This cabbage salad is a nice variation from the usual apple-cabbage salad. My husband and I enjoyed this with pork chops and small roasted new potatoes.I will definitely be making this again. Read More

I really liked this recipe! It was fun to make smelled delicious the whole way through and tastes very good. I used a little more than a cup of apricots instead of the 3/4 that the recipe called for. I also used white onion instead of red. The final result is pretty and it tastes very good. It is unique sweet and a little tangy. I would recommend.:-) Read More

i tripled the recipe (!) for a church potluck just "guess-timating" the other ingredients and it turned out great. i made it a day ahead of time and decided to serve it cold (due to ease of transporting etc.) with bleu cheese crumbles mixed in. i preferred it when it was hot but those who didn't know what they were missing temperature-wise said things like "best red cabbage" "it's nice with the sweetness" and "yours had the yummy stuff (i.e.- apricots) in it." it's definitely an interesting take on red cabbage and might be an acquired taste.... but one worth acquiring!
