This is another simple summer salads we usually eat in Croatia. It is standard restaurant salad you can get in most Croatian restaurants or households. You can use olive oil instead of normal, and cider vinegar. If you cool it, it is very refreshing during summer.
- 300 g cabbage (white or Dutch cabbage)
- 2 tablespoons vinegar
- 1 tablespoon oil
- 7 g salt
- 4 g pepper
- 2 tablespoons water
- Cut cabbage into thin strips and put into salad bowl. Season cabbage with salt, pepper, vinegar, oil and add some water (more if you do not like so sour or less).
- Mix all ingredients and wait at least 30 minutes before serving. You can cool it in refrigerator if you like it cold.
Simple and authentic, just like vacationing in former Yugoslavia in 84. Too bad it all went down like it did.
My mother, born 1922, makes it like this with the addition of horseradish and grated onion, about 1 TBSP. each. No sugar.
