A much ordered Belgian red cabbage salad in Belgium and The Netherlands. Easy to make and the result is told by its nice fresh taste ! Enjoy !
Note: I put this recipe back to this category since i noticed it was moved to the Dutch recipes section.
- 1-1/2 cups cider vinegar
- 2 tablespoons Sugar
- 2 bay leaves
- 1 sprig fresh thyme
- 1/2 head red cabbage (about 1 pound), finely shreeded
- 1/2 cup vegetable oil
- salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
- 1 tart Apple, unpeeled, halved, cored, and thinly sliced
- 1/2 cup walnut halves, toasted
1 Heat the vinegar with the Sugar, bay leaves, and thyme in a small saucepan. Stir until Sugar is dissolved. Pour the warm vinegar over the shredded red cabbage in a bowl and toss well. Cover and refrigerate for at least 6 hours.
2 Remove the salad from the refrigerator. The cabbage will be wilted and slightly pickled. Add the oil and mix well. Season with salt and pepper. The salad will keep in the refrigerator up to 2 weeks.
