Sweet, tangy, and savory, this recipe for Jamie Oliver’s Red Cabbage is a great accompaniment to grilled or roasted meat or fish. Diced into small bits in the food processor, the cabbage is cooked alongside bacon in a caramelized sugar, red wine, and vinegar sauce until tender. Seasoned with rosemary, butter and honey are added as a last touch to finish off this delightfully sweet and savory red cabbage salad. A wintry dish, this red cabbage boasts all the warmth of flavor you crave during the cold months.

I like the hidden bites of bacon throughout this cabbage. The brown sugar and honey were also a good complimentary flavor. I have used this dish as a side for meats and fish.
