Remove tough outer leaves and core from cabbage and slice into thin shreds. Place shredded cabbage, sliced onions and apple into a medium size bowl.
In a separate small bowl, whisk together ingredients for dressing. Taste for acid and salt and pepper. Pour dressing over cabbage, apples, onions and toss until completely combined. Stir in cranberries. Taste again for salt and pepper. Serve immediately, or chill to allow the flavors to permeate and cabbage soften.
