Here's a wonderful side dish to serve with roasted or braised pork, chicken, beef, or lamb -- or even fish. It's also supremely easy to make, meaning you can prepare it any night of the week for a quick family dinner. Just saute finely chopped red cabbage in olive oil until tender, then season with salt and a splash of balsamic (or other) vinegar, for a welcome touch of acidity.
