Red cabbage or red cabbage?

But strictly speaking, all names are not completely correct. The cabbage is not red or blue! Earlier in the 18th century, however, there was no name for the color purple. Only red and blue were available .;)

The red cabbage is full of vitamin C, minerals, calcium, potassium and iron and is therefore a true nutrient bomb. He stays in the fridge for about 14 days. If you have cut it, cover it with cling film.

The best thing about red cabbage is that we can get it locally everywhere. It does not have to be transported across Europe, but is guaranteed to be fresh from a farmer near you. This is good for the environment, as transport costs can be saved and good for the local farmers.

Red cabbage as a nutritious salad

I love red cabbage as a salad. If I am at a salad bar and there is cabbage, then my plate is full of it. Even my little man can not get enough of red cabbage salad.

So today I have a delicious variation on a red cabbage salad with feta and caramelized walnuts. Although I did not use real sheepfat, but cow milk, because I like it better. The caramelized walnuts give the slightly acidic salad with its sweet-nutty note a special twist.

For this salad you cut the red cabbage into as small strips as possible. I have a WMF square drive“target =” _ blank “rel =” noopener noreferrer “> Square grater* Uses – the side with the single knife, what you would use if you want to slice a cucumber.

The thinner the stripes, the softer the texture of the herb. If the stripes are a bit too thick, you can break the structure with a good kneading massage to soften the herb.

The indicated amounts are enough for four large or 6 smaller portions salad. If you can not eat everything at once, then the salad can be stored well in the fridge. But save the feta, the nuts and the red cabbage separately and rebuild the salad freshly as needed.

I have one last tip for you: Use the caramelized nuts still warm. When cooled, stick to the pan. If that happens to you, simply heat the pan again briefly and the nuts can be loosened again.
