  • 1/2 head red cabbage, thinly sliced
  • 2 medium apples, cut into 1/2” slices
  • 2 Tbsp. olive oil
  • 2 scallions, root ends trimmed
  • 1/4 cup roasted sunflower seeds
  • Kosher salt
  • 1/2 cup Lemon Mustard Vinaigrette


  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
  • Add apples, scallions, and half of the cabbage to a baking sheet. Toss with olive oil and 1 tsp. kosher salt. Roast until cabbage is brown and ends are starting to crisp, 25-30 minutes. Toss halfway through.
  • To make dressing, add shallot, lemon juice, mustard, olive oil, and a punch of salt to a jar. Shake for 30 seconds to combine.
  • Add the other half of cabbage to a large bowl. Sprinkle with 1/2 tsp. salt and 1/4 cup of the dressing. Toss and gently massage cabbage with hands until slightly wilted. Let sit while the other ingredients finish roasting.
  • Roughly chop roasted scallions. Add roasted cabbage, apples, and scallions to bowl with cabbage. Shake lemon mustard vinaigrette for a few seconds to combine if needed and add remaining 1/4 cup to bowl. Toss to combine. Season with salt accordingly and top with sunflower seeds.
