This is a very popular salad in Poland. In my family we usually eat it with fired fish. It's easy to make, cheap and full of vitamins! It reminds me of my family home. When I was a child I used to hate it and my parent always made me to eat it... Now, times have changed (and tastes too!) and I like it a lot! Just one thing - if you buy sauerkraut and it will be too acidic just put it on the strainer and under running water - it will 'rinse' away some of that acidic juices.
How to make it...
- 500 g sauerkraut
- 2 carrots, pealed and grated
- 1 big apple, pealed and grated
- 2 tablespoons sunflower oil
- salt, pepper
- 2 bay leafs and 2 pimentos
- few cumin seeds or a pinch of ground cumin
Mix everything well together - best way to do it is to use fork. Put aside for about 30 minutes - that way all the flavours will blend together.
P.S. It will keep well in the fridge so don't be afraid to make it in advance.
