FRENCH CABBAGE SALAD
Wilted cabbage salad with bacon
This is a wonderful thing to do with cabbage. With no garlic, and
using cider vinegar, it becomes German cabbage salad. Adding sour cream to
that makes Danish cabbage salad.
- 1 cabbage,
- 1/4 lb bacon
- 2 cups onion,
- 1 clove garlic,
- 1/2 cup white-wine tarragon vinegar
Cut the bacon into tiny bits, fry it
in a big deep frying pan, and fish out all the bits after they are
Cut up the onion and garlic and fry them in the bacon fat.
When they are brown, pour in the vinegar.
Bring it just up to a simmer, add all the cabbage and bacon, toss it as
you would a salad, and serve it. The cabbage doesn't cook, but it
wilts a little under the hot vinegar.
Cut the vinegar with a little water if you don't like very sour things,
no need to measure.
