Recipe: Red cabbage, beetroot, apple, pomegranate and walnut salad
This red cabbage and beetroot salad is best made a few hours in advance to allow the vinegar and oil to soften the cabbage a little and is a wonderfully colourful accompaniment to cooked game such as pheasant and partridge, roast hams or sausages served with colcannon.
1 small red cabbage, about 750g, very thinly sliced
1 medium-sized beetroot, peeled and finely grated
