Red Cabbage Slaw (Russian Tea Room Restaurant Recipe)
« on: June 21, 2015, 10:33:38 AM »
RED CABBAGE SLAW


Makes about 4 cups

1 head of red cabbage (about a lb.)
1TBS sour salt*
Water to cover (about a quart)
1 cup applesauce or shredded apple
1 TBS dijon mustard
S & P to taste


1. Trim cabbage and remove tough outer leaves.  Cut into quarters and remove hard stem.  Shred the rest.
2.  Add sour salt and water to large bowl (not aluminum).  Add shredded cabbage.  Water should cover it, add more if needed.  Cover bowl.
3.  Let soak at room temp or refrigerator 6-8 hours.  Drain and rinse thoroughly under cold running water.  Drain again.  Place in your bowl.
4.  Combine applesauce or shredded apple with mustard, add to cabbage and mix.
5.  Season with salt and pepper to taste.
6.  Served chilled or at room temperature.


* Sour salt is citric acid.  It is used for canning and other preserving purposes and provides a tart taste, like in lemonade.  You can substitute 6 TBS. of fresh lemon juice or 8 TBS of vinegar for the 1 TBS of sour salt.

This is an excellent accompaniment to meats.  It was a specialty of The Russian Tea Room, NYC.

Just had red cabbage with apple the other day, but never would have considered mustard in the recipe.   What an odd combo!  I'll have to try it😀
