This crisp kraut is a quick alternative to fermented sauerkraut, and is a delicious use of red cabbage.


  • 1 head red cabbage (Thinly sliced)
  • 1 shallot (finely chopped)
  • 1/2 cup red wine
  • 3 tablespoons Vinagre de Banyuls ((Sherry vinegar can be substituted))
  • 3 tablespoons Ratto's Olive Oil
  • 1 teaspoon caraway seeds
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • Small salt & pepper


Feel free to experiment with spices. We love the pure caraway flavor, but you could easily change this up for a little more flair.
