German Sweet & Sour Red Cabbage

When I started talking to friends about an Oktoberfest inspired dinner I got lots of suggestions on dishes I might make.  I knew Wienerschnitzel and Spaetzle would be on the menu for certain and after mutliple requests for Red Cabbage our dinner was complete.  German Sweet & Sour Red Cabbage.

Slow braised red cabbage in a sweet balsamic glaze with sauteed apple and onion.  The delicious aromas turn into mouth-watering goodness.  I just love this punchy side with the mildness of Wienerschnitzel and Spaetzle.

I used our Oli+Ve Blackberry Ginger Balsamic Vinegar in this dish for a little extra flavor kick.
