How to make Romy Gill's red cabbage and pomegranate salad 1

I’d never had red cabbage until I came to the UK. I’d had it once, a long time ago, with a roast in a pub but it left such a bad taste in my mouth that I didn’t want to eat it again.

That was until I opened my restaurant. I started serving it as a side dish, and then I began to like it.

I made it with pomegranate molasses and fresh pomegranate seeds, which go really well with the crunchiness of the red cabbage.

But what’s key here, is the lime juice. If you use lemon, you won’t have the same balance of flavours, so it’s really important to the dish.

This is something you can easily make in advance and enjoy throughout the week.

And it’s versatile by season too. In winter, I use crushed walnuts and fresh mint instead.
