Summer red cabbage salad with Balsamic dressing

I enjoy experimenting and getting creative with salads. Today for lunch, I made a spontaneous red cabbage salad with a balsamic dressing. I looked in the fridge and picked out ingredients that would be suitable for a salad. Balsamic vinegar is one of my favorite vinegar to use for salad dressings because it has a good balance of sweet and sour.

This salad is bursting with natural sweetness and fresh flavor.

I hope you will enjoy this recipe!
