This bright and cheerful holiday slaw will provide a healthy and fresh contrast to the rest of your Holiday meal. The apple, pomegranate and dried apricot make it festive enough for a Christmas feast, yet it easy enough for a weeknight dinner!



  • 1 small head shredded Napa Cabbage
  • 1 cup thinly shredded purple cabbage
  • 1 sweet crisp apple such as piñata, cut into thin matchsticks
  • 1/2 cup thinly sliced radishes
  • 3/4 cup salad dressing such as apple cider vinegar salad dressing
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon chopped fresh tarragon or 3/4 teaspoon dried
  • 1/2 cup sliced almonds toasted
  • 1/2 cup pomegranate arils
  • 1/2 cup chopped dried apricots
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt


  1. Place Napa cabbage, purple cabbage, apple, radish in a large mixing bowl. Drizzle the dressing over the cabbage mixture and add tarragon, and toss to coat the vegetables evenly with the dressing. Transfer to a serving bowl.
  2. Top with the almonds, pomegranate arils and dried apricots just before serving.


Can be prepared through step 1 up to 4 hours in advance. Keep chilled.
