Simple, yet delicious, Cabbage and Onion Salad with raisins is the ideal addition to most main meals and especially good served with barbecued meat
This is one of my favorite and almost always go to salad. The Cabbage and Onion salad can be served with just about any main meal and even kids love it.
The salad will keep well for up to three days in a sealed container in the refrigerator.
Therefore you can make the salad well in advance and at the time of serving, give it a good stir and transfer to a serving dish.
I found this recipe in the Spyskaarte Vir Elke Seisoen many years ago, adapted it slightly and have not grown tired of the salad yet.
The original recipe calls for Caraway Seeds to be added, but I (for some reason ..??) have never used it.
I do however use Caraway Seeds in some of my other favorite recipes !
As I have mentioned before, I never cook according to season. Well, I do make soup a little more during Winter than in Summer.
But then again, you might find me sharing salads or other light recipes right in the middle of Winter.
In South-Africa, we also have the perfect weather to braai (barbecue) whenever we like ! it is never too cold to sit outside around a nice fire, with some steaks and lamb chops (and do not forget our Boerewors!) on the grill.
This Cabbage and Onion salad is extremely quick and easy to throw together. But, once made, the longer the salad stands, the better !
I slice my own Cabbage as I have found the ready-sliced Cabbage found in the stores, are not quite as thinly sliced.
The store-bought Cabbage also have some lumpy pieces, and is way more expensive than when you buy a head of Cabbage. (which will be useful in many recipes, unlike a packet of pre-sliced Cabbage).
