When you’ve had your fill of the Kardashian-Bieber playground to the stars in nearby Pointe Calumet, a short drive outside of Montreal in the direction of Oka, wander over to the beach, near a forest and bike trails and in the midst of lush farmland, with apple orchards and cheese galore. (Oh, how I love cheese!)
Nab a purple cabbage for roasting later and pick a sweet and tart Melba apple from Les Fromages du Verger. It’s the perfect foil in this Purple Roasted Cabbage Apple Salad.
Purple Roasted Cabbage Apple Salad
- 1 small red cabbage, sliced 1/4-1/3-inch thick
- 2 t olive oil
- sea salt
- 1 apple, cored, diced
- 1/4 c pecan halves, crumbled and lightly toasted
- 2 T chopped dill
- 1 T cider vinegar, balsamic vinegar, Dijon mustard
- 2 T olive oil
- sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
Preheat the oven to 420°F.
In a baking pan, coat the cabbage slices with olive oil and sprinkle with sea salt. Roast for 15 minutes to soften and brown the edges slightly.
Remove from oven and chop roughly.
In a large bowl, mix dressing ingredients. Add the chopped apple and stir, then add all ingredients, toss and serve. If not serving right away, keep the pecan aside and scatter on just before serving.

What a delicious looking salad. Red cabbage and apples were made for each other.

Thanks Jovina. It made my meal last night with a fried egg and some wonderful market stall toast.
Laura Winer says
Tried it tonight and loved the roasted cabbage, as well as the delicious dressing. Will definitely make again!
Jittery Cook says
It’s addictive. Tastes great leftover. I should have said serves 1 or 2. Who knew roasted cabbage would make such a tasty salad? And the colour? Like eating a rainbow.
