About the Pointed Cabbage Salad Ingredients
- Pointed cabbage – The small pointed head of cabbage is related to white cabbage and is great for salads and stews. It contains valuable plant substances, protects the stomach and intestines and is very easily digestible. The pointed cabbage is in season from May to June.
- Apple – There are so many varieties, we’re going to use the Red Delicious variety in this recipe. So the name already says that it tastes delicious. From the 20th century to the beginning of the 21st century, the dessert apple was the most popular apple variety worldwide.
- Honey – We used a forest honey in this recipe. This is made from honeydew and not from collected flower nectar. Forest honey has an incomparably spicy taste and is perfect for autumn.
- Walnuts – Walnuts contain B vitamins, iron, magnesium, calcium and potassium. The good ingredients of the walnut are important for many processes in the body. They should even increase the ability to concentrate.
- Sunflower seeds – Sunflower seeds contain unsaturated, saturated and polyunsaturated fats. These are sunflower seeds. Roasted they are a delicious crunchy topping for every salad.
This is how the cabbage salad is made
- For the pointed cabbage salad, we first remove the outer leaves from the cabbage and wash it off. Then it is quartered and the individual pieces are cut into thin strips. Next, the apples are cut into small pieces. This works best if you first quarter the apples, then core them and finally cut them into cubes.
- The pieces of apple are then added to the pointed cabbage.
- Next up are the cores. We put these in a pan without fat and roast them until they are lightly brown all over. Allow to cool slightly and straight into the salad.
- We now heat some oil in the pan to fry the ham cubes until crispy all over. We then place the cubes on a plate lined with kitchen paper to drain and cool.
- In the meantime, it’s time to mix the dressing. Simply mix the ingredients together and then pour over the salad.
