Red Cabbage Salad with Ginger

This salad improves if done the day before. The red colour is brought to life by the vinegar. The friend who shared the recipe with us sometimes uses pickled rather than fresh ginger if she has some in her fridge. I personally enjoy this super healthy salad, but I love fresh ginger!
