This was just what I needed to accompany a rabbit stew, especially since I had the main ingredients on hand. I typed in red cabbage, beetroot and apple and this is what I found. I did make a few changes as I had no lemons on had. I used a red wine vinegar and light olive oil and lots of freshly ground black pepper. I also grated the apples as well as the beetroots. Everyone enjoyed it. I'm wondering if a bit of grated fresh horseradish would not give it a little more "kick". I do recommend trying this combination as these ingredients are plentiful in the fall.
