Ingredients

  • 1 medium white cabbage, (about 2 pounds), outer leaves removed
  • 1 medium red cabbage, (about 2 pounds), outer leaves removed
  • 3 medium carrots, peeled and shredded
  • 2 large pears, stem & seeds removed, thinly sliced lengthwise
  • 12 thin slices prosciutto
  • 3 tablespoons raisins
  • 5 tablespoons pomegranate
  • salt to taste

THE DRESSING

Instructions

  • Quarter the cabbage through the core, and then cut out the core. Cut each quarter crosswise in half and finely shred. (Keep it to the refrigerator in a well-sealed food container for up to 5 days).
