Red Cabbage Salad

November 24, 2011 Leave a comment

– 1 small red cabbage, ca. 800g-1kg
– 2 apples
– 2 teaspoon salt
– 1-2 tablespoon cider vinegar (I used white wine vinegar, cause I didn’t have cider vinegar)
– 1-2 tablespoon rape oil or sunflower oil, no olive oil!
– 1 tablespoon sugar
– pepper

1. Cut the red cabbage in small pieces. I’ve used my new kitchen helper “Genius Nicer Dicer Plus”.
2. Add salt and begin to knead the cabbage (with your hands if you like purple skin or use gloves 😉 ) until the juices start running. Let it rest for a while.
3. Cut the apples in small pieces and add them to the cabbage.
4. Add sugar to the cabbage and knead it again shortly.
5. Add vinegar, oil and pepper. Season to Taste.
6. I’ve put it in the fridge over night.

If you like onions or spring onions you could also add 1-2 of those. But I don’t really like them.

I’ve made this soup for the first time and I’m loving it! 🙂
