Red cabbage pickled with apple and raisin

I love fresh cabbage salad, but, unfortunately, the cabbage sold here, lacks crunch and juiciness. So, I always try to combine it with something to add more flavour and texture.

Red cabbage pickled with apple and raisin

  • 300 g red cabbage
  • 1 apple ( 150 g)
  • 100 ml raisin
  • salt, freshly ground pepper, pinch of salt


  • 1/2 - 1 tsp honey
  • 2 tbsp rosemary vinegar (any other flavour to your taste)
  • 50 ml vegetable oil
  • Shred the cabbage, sprinkle with sugar to mix. Using your hands press it until wilted.
  • whisk all the ingredients for the brine
  • julienne the apple and mix with the cabbage
  • cover the cabbage with brine and let it chill overnight in the fridge to serve sprinkle with the raisin
I make this salad very often as a garnish to meat or fish dishes. I use rice vinegar, would be very good with apple or raspberry vinegar. I add raisin together with apple, also sometimes use currants, cranberries, blueberries...The longer it pickles the testier.
