My Dish
My mind was aswirl with the possibilities. I thought about cooking with beer. I considered sausages. And I even flirted with a few German desserts. But, in the end, I ended up with a salad - a hearty vegetable side dish that boasts big sweet and sour flavors. We loved it! I served it with a Grilled Halibut with Grüne Soße (German Green Sauce) and a warm potato salad.

German Coleslaw

  • 1 organic medium-sized head green cabbage
  • 1 large organic red bell pepper
  • ¾ C organic white vinegar
  • ¼ C organic apple cider vinegar
  • 2 T mustard (I used a spicy brown mustard)
  • 3 T olive oil
  • 2 to 3 cloves garlic, crushed and minced
  • pinch of dried red chili flakes
  • 4 T organic granulated sugar
  • 1 T sea salt

Remove the outer leaves of the cabbage, quarter the cabbage, and remove the cores. Use a mandolin to slice the cabbage as thinly as possible. Deseed the red pepper and slice that as thinly as possible. Place the cabbage and red pepper in a large mixing bowl.

In a medium saucepan bring all of the dressing ingredients to boil. Whisk to combine. Remove from heat and pour the warm dressing over the cabbage immediately.

Cover the bowl with a plate or lid and let rest for at least 30 minutes. Toss well before serving. If desired, grind some fresh black pepper over the top before serving.

Quick Pickled Red Onions and Radishes

If you've been reading my blog for even a short amount of time, you probably know how much I love to pickle things. I was just telling a friend you can pickle - with vinegar - or you can ferment - with salt - for similar delicious effect. The latter has digestive benefits and I love to do that, but when I need that pop of sour flavor quickly, I whip up quick pickles that are ready in as little as a day or two. I've Pickled Blueberries , Pickled Asparagus , Pickled Cranberries , Pickled Pumpkin , and even Pickled Chard Stems ! This I did last night for an upcoming recipe challenge that requires I include radishes. Ummmm...of course I'm pickling them!
