During summer we tend to reach for cool snacks. One of such proposals is a salad made of young cabbage. The months between June and September are the best months for this vegetable to grow. Apart from providing you with lots of vitamins, this salad is easy to prepare, and all you need are basic ingredients, which you will surely find at the nearest store

Young cabbage salad with mayonnaise

– 2 young carrots,

– 2 tablespoons mayonnaise,

– 2 tablespoons sour cream,

– salt, pepper, sugar.

This is the most common version of cabbage salad and the quickest to prepare. You can vary it by adding two ripe apples, grated on large meshes or large onions. You can also add raisins or canned corn.

Wash the young cabbage and grate or chop it. Wash, peel and grate the carrots. Separate leek from leaves, cut in half and further shred in half circles. Put the vegetables into a large bowl and mix. Finally add mayonnaise, sour cream and spices

Mix everything together and season as needed. If you want to prepare more fit version,

use thick natural yoghurt and low-fat mayonnaise instead of cream. This is a good option for people on a diet, vegetarians or athletes.

Cabbage salad with honey and dill

  • bunch of dill,

As in the recipe above, wash and shred the cabbage and carrots on a large-mesh grater and chop the dill. To prepare the sauce, combine mayonnaise with yoghurt and honey, and add lemon juice. Mix all the vegetables and add the sauce, mix again.

White cabbage salad in Chinese style

Cabbage salad prepared in Chinese style is a great addition to homemade burgers or casseroles.

Ingredients needed to prepare Chinese-style salad:

  • a glass of sugar,

Alternative additions to the salad

Cabbage salad can be prepared on the basis of basic ingredients, that is leek, cabbage, spices and carrots. Test the flavors and add pickles, paprika, horseradish or mustard if you like.
