Servings 6 servings


  • 1 - 2 Tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 yellow onion halved and thinly sliced
  • 1 head red cabbage quartered, cored, and thinly sliced about 6 cups
  • 1/4 tsp. salt or more taste
  • 1 green apple peeled and chopped
  • 2 Tbsp. apple cider vinegar
  • 2 Tbsp. dried cranberries (preferably naturally sweetened)


  • Heat a large heavy skillet over medium heat, and when it is hot, add the oil. When the oil is hot, add the onions and cook them for 2 – 3 minutes until they start to brown.
  • Add the cabbage and salt, and cook it for 2 – 3 more minutes. Add the apples and 1 Tbsp. of the vinegar, stir and cook, covered, for 5 minutes.
  • Uncover it and cook it for 15 more minutes until the cabbage is tender, stirring it occasionally, but not too often so it browns a bit on the bottom.
  • Stir in the cranberries and second Tbsp. of vinegar and cook it for 5 more minutes until the cabbage is very soft.
