Fresh cabbage tastes great both prepared hot and cold. Whether it is cooked with cream or just as a salad, I like it either way.
This recipe is for a salad, which I bet everyone knows. I remember having made it for the first time a few years ago.
It tastes best prepared from baby cabbage, because those are juicy and crispy. When using this type of cabbage, you do not need to add too much salt to soften it.
This salad is ideal for any type of meat. It fits chicken, beef or pork. It also complements fish well.
I often use it as an addition to burgers too.

Good to know when making cabbage salad.
If you do not have any apples, you can use apple cider vinegar. One to two tablespoons should be enough.
You can also add fresh parsley to the salad.
