“Káposzta saláta” from The Paprikas Weiss Hungarian Cookbook

Serves 6

Peter also submitted this cabbage recipe, which sounds very easy to make. This recipe also uses several ingredients from our pick up this week which is always a plus. Peter, thanks so much for these recipes- I’m sure we will all enjoy them!

1 medium-size cabbage, trimmed and shredded
1 onion thinly sliced
2 carrots, grated
1 tbls salt
4 cups boiling water
2 tbls vinegar
Freshly ground black pepper

Prepare the vegetables. Add the salt and boiling water and leave to stand for 1 hour. Drain into a colander and press the water from the vegetables. Put into a large mixing bowl and stir in the vinegar. Season the salad to taste with freshly ground black pepper. It should be pleasantly sour and peppery and is better made a day or two ahead. This is a good salad to serve with pork.”
