Red Cabbage and Apple Coleslaw Salad

I'm not a big fan of fruit in salads, or of Coleslaws generally. But I love red cabbage, and I was really impressed by the photograph of this salad on this wonderful blog, it really is such a pretty salad. So I decided I had to give it a go.
I made quite a few changes of my own, and we both loved it.
