    Rohkostsalat (Cabbage Fruit Salad with Sour Cream Dressing)

    This is a recipe I adoped in the Great Adopta-thon. I wonder how to translate the name, whether it is a traditional salad, and anything else anyone might know about it?

    It is not a traditional German recipe in the sense of "having been in the family for generations" (You can't grow pineapples in Germany usually icon_smile.gif ) , but Rohkostsalat in one form or another has become a regular food in many German families who try to eat more healthy. I myself have been aware of a trend for lighter, healthier food in German cookbooks and magazines since the early 80's, though it actually goes back much further I believe. Rohkostsalat is one of the oldest forms of "health food" you encouter in those books and magazines, so you could say it is traditional.
    Rohkost means "uncooked vegetables and fruits". Rohkostsalate are salads not made from typical salad ingredients like tomatoes, cucumber, lettuce. The idea of Rohkost is not to loose nutrients through cooking and adding more fiber. All Rohkostsalate are usually finely grated or cut to make them easier to digest. Also a dairy product is frequently used in the dressing to add proteins. Together with added nuts or grains (sprouts) which are often added dairy products contain all amino acids your body requires. This combination is therefore considered "vollwertig" (having full value ). "Vollwertkost" (eating foods that have full value for the nurishment of your body) is an old health food trend in Germany.
    A classical Rohkostsalat I frequently do is

    Möhrenrohkost (Carrot salad)
    1 cup finely grated carrots
    3/4 cup grated tart apples
    3 TB roughly chopped nuts
    1/2 cup natural yoghurt
    1/2 T mild honey (or sugar)
    1-2 TB lemon juice (depending on how sweet you like it)
    1 pinch salt

    Mix all ingredients except nuts together, sprinkle with nuts.
    Serve immediately with dark bread and butter as a lunch or light dinner (add a tomato salad then). Will turn brown if it stands too long.

    Being a terrible Besserwisser (German for know-it-all), I am afraid it was my pleasure. icon_biggrin.gif

    Hi Jenny: I just saw your post! Don`t know how close it is to German, although many Norwegian words are. Here in Norway, they have what they call RÅKOST SALAT...which, means a salad made of shredded cabbage, a few shredded carrost, a little bit (not much) of shreds of onions, and maybe a few slivers of red paprika (bell pepper). Smetimes they put a few craaway seeds in, but usually not. Maybe this will help icon_biggrin.gif (directly transelated RÅKOST would mean= salad with shredded/thinly sliced cabbage.

    Hi Jenny,

    being a terrible Besserwisser myself icon_rolleyes.gif I have to join this discussion icon_biggrin.gif "Rohkost" is simply "raw food" and it can be a salad of anything raw. But I will surly not taste your salad, I hate cabbage or "Sauerkraut"! icon_redface.gif

    Hi everyone,

    thanks for having me (can I say that?icon_biggrin.gif icon_redface.gif )
    It's true, Rohkostsalat as a dessert?-eeeehhhh... No, these healthy dishes are eaten as a first course or when on a diet. We have so many nice cakes and custards, no need for cabbage as a final course icon_cool.gif
