This is my mother-in-laws recipe. It is always requested for family get togethers. She says to use far less oil and sugar than the recipe calls for but I have printed it as is. Time includes overnight marinating time.
- 1 cabbage, finely shredded
- 1 onion, chopped
- 4 garlic cloves, chopped
- 1 cup oil
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 cup white vinegar
- salt and pepper
- Mix all dressing ingredients together until sugar melts.
- Mix salad stuff and pour dressing over.
- Leave to stand in fridge overnight.
- Serve at room temperature.
I have to say I was actually really surprised at how good this was simply because of the small number of ingredients. But it really turned out great. I'm glad that I read all the way through your recipe description as 1 cup of each oil sugar, and vinegar seemed like big time overkill. I only used a half a head of cabbage, a half an onion, and 2 cloves of garlic, and I used 2 tbs of each oil, sugar, and vinegar. I would suggest to future reviewers that if they are going to use a whole head of cabbage to use about a quarter cup of each of the dressing ingredients. Thanks so much for posting we really enjoyed this simple dish!
