Tips For The Balsamic Vinegar Coleslaw Recipe
➡️ Green cabbage salad, cabbage slaw, or coleslaw is one of the most popular vegetable salads in many parts of the planet. There are several types of cabbage used to make a salad, among which the most popular are white cabbage or green cabbage and red cabbage or purple cabbage.
➡️ As fresh cabbage salad is prepared almost everywhere in the world, there are many recipes for simple cabbage salads that have various gastronomic influences. I share with you a recipe for a healthy cabbage salad with balsamic vinegar dressing, which is used in some parts of Eastern Europe.
➡️ Making cabbage slaw is very easy. Preparing a simple cabbage salad recipe poses no difficulty even for people who are less experienced when it comes to cooking. However, there are a few things I emphasize to get the best results. A very important tip is to cut the cabbage into very thin slices, grate, or shred it. This is useful both to enjoy the salad while eating and to better combine cabbage with flavors.
➡️ My technique is to extract water from the cabbage. There are many people who claim that the liquid in cabbage is not actually water, but a “magic liquid” that will strengthen your body like no other substance on Earth! Folks, the liquid in the cabbage is plain water and needs to be treated as such!
➡️ But why do you have to extract water from cabbage? Mainly because of two things: one is to soften the cabbage, and the other is to reduce its volume.
➡️ Regarding the flavors used for this simple cabbage salad recipe: I really like the combination of balsamic vinegar, black pepper, and cumin because it fits perfectly with the taste of fresh cabbage. Needless to say, you can skip cumin if you don’t like it (however, keep in mind that cumin is very useful for digestion!). In addition, you can add a few chopped or grated garlic cloves to give even more flavor to the cabbage salad.
➡️ If you are wondering what is the best vinegar to use for this sweet cabbage salad, the answer is the one you like best. You can use balsamic vinegar with various flavors such as tarragon, basil, and so on. At the same time, you might pour plain white wine vinegar (use red wine vinegar if you make purple cabbage salad) or even apple cider vinegar. The amount depends only on you, respectively on how sour you like to eat fresh cabbage salad.
