This is a delicious, light, refreshing dessert. It's low cal and sugar and can be made with the lite pie filling in any flavor. Note that this needs to be made the night before to soften the graham crackers.

Most pasta salads are heavy on the pasta and light on everything else. This version, which can be served warm or cold, includes a hefty portion of vegetables--both spinach and tomatoes.

Bavarian Style Red Cabbage
Very Good 4.6/5
(7 ratings)

My mother was born and raised in Bavaria. Our family loved red cabbage. She is gone now, but I've adapted her recipe with just the right ratio of ingredients to make it just like hers! The key is using red wine vinegar. This freezes very well, too, but there aren't leftovers when I make it for family get togethers.
