Hot cabbage salad - {warmer krautsalat}

Yield: 4 Servings

Measure Ingredient
1 White or red cabbage head
Salt
Boiling water
4 slices Bacon; diced
¼ cup Red wine vinegar
Pepper; to taste
¼ teaspoon Caraway seed

Shred and wash the cabbage; drain very well. Place drained cabbage in a large bowl, sprinkle with a little salt, cover completely with boiling water, cover bowl and let stand 1 hour.

In a skillet, fry bacon until crisp.

In a small saucepan, heat vinegar until hot.

Drain cabbage and place in a bowl or on individual plates. Pour hot vinegar over cabbage. Season with salt, pepper, and caraway seeds. Add bacon and drizzle with hot bacon fat. Serve at once. This recipe serves 4 to 6.

Comments: This German recipe can be served as a first-course salad or as a vegetable side dish with grilled or roast meat. The success of this easy salad depends on the bacon and vinegar being very hot when poured over the cabbage.
