French Cabbage Salad

  • IMG_5945So this can have many variations and it would be considered from another country, skip the garlic, use cider vinegar, and it becomes a German cabbage salad. Add some sour cream and it becomes a Danish cabbage salad.  Believe it or not this was incredibly flavorsome; it was tart and tangy with the smoky backdrop of the bacon.  The ingredients worked well together and complimented my Pork chops. I know this was a hit as my daughter only wanted this for her second helping. I love it when a recipe comes together.

You will need;

1/2 pound bacon

1 medium head cabbage, shredded

onion, chopped

2 Clove garlic, minced (I used pre minced and two heaping tablespoons)

1/2 cup tarragon vinegar (I did not have tarragon so I used Pear infused vinegar)

½ cup water and 2 chicken bouillon cubes dissolved

Cut bacon into small pieces and place the bacon in a large pot.

Cook over medium high heat until evenly brown.

While it is browning, cut your onion, garlic and cabbage.

Once browned and crispy add the onion and garlic and fry in the bacon fat until browned.

Once it has cooked down some; add the vinegar and water mixture. Bring to a simmer and add the cabbage to the bacon. Sauté briefly and serve warm.

This was quite good, it is bursting with flavor, the vinegar really has an amazing taste with the bacon and onions!
