Red Cabbage and Apple Slaw with Pomegranate Vinaigrette

I ordered a red cabbage from Amazon fresh and I received two.  That’s a lot of cabbage.  After unsuccessfully trying to give one away, I decided to try to come up with some salads to make use of my abundance of cabbage.  

Last weekend, because I was making falafel, I decided to check out a nearby mediterranean market, Goodies.  Though I had sent my husband there in the past to get bulgarian feta (which, after trying once I decided was the only feta that I would ever eat again) I had never been inside myself.  The market was great, with all kind of interesting ingredients that aren’t readily available at my usual grocery destinations.  I got some sumac, which I have used on hummus, as well as some pomegranate molasses.  The pomegranate molasses are basically a reduction of pomegranate juice, kind of like a balsamic reduction, but fruitier.

The molasses are key to this recipe, which is now going into my regular salad rotation.
