200 grams sauerkraut
50 grams red onion
sliced thinly
1 teaspoon brown sugar
½ teaspoon caraway seeds
1 tablespoon garlic chives
chopped finely
1 tablespoon parsley leaves
heaping, chopped finely
1 teaspoon sage leaves
fresh, chopped finely
1 teaspoon marjoram
fresh leaves
2 teaspoons sesame oil
1 tablespoon sesame seeds
dry fried, black seeds preferable
1 x salt and black pepper


1 - Prepare the ingredients listed above. If the cabbage is too sour for your senses, soak it in water for 30 to 60 minutes, then drain. 2 - Toss all the ingredients except the oil into a salad bowl. Sprinkle with a pinch of salt and pepper. Stir to combine. Set aside for about 30 minutes. Stir sometimes. 3 - Dry fry the sesame seeds for 1 to 2 minutes. 4 - Stir the oil into the salad. Sprinkle with the sesame seeds when you are ready to serve.

Comment. Do not add too much salt. Taste the salad and maybe you like it without any salt as I do. If the caraway flavor seems to be too strong for you, dry fry the ground seeds for a minute.

Flavorful and refreshing. Agree that it should go deliciously well with pierogi or any kind of meat dishes. Will have to give it a try, thanks for sharing this easy yet tasty recipe with the nice photo :)

Thanks a lot for your comment. My wife says the salad is quite good, and if she says "quite good" I should be happy, you know. ha ha :))))))
