Krautsalat is another one of my childhood favorites. It’s easy to make and sure to please any cabbage and bacon lover!

  • 1 Large Green Cabbage (Shredded)
  • 1/2 Pound Bacon (Finely Chopped)
  • 1 Large Onion (Chopped)
  • 1/2 Cup Apple Cider Vinegar
  • 2 Tablespoons Minced Garlic
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Freshly Ground Pepper
  • 1 Bay Leaf
  1. Shred cabbage and chop onion and bacon. Make sure bacon is chopped into tiny bits.
  2. In large-size deep frying pan place bacon and cook 8 minutes over a medium-high heat. You will want bacon to be nice and crisp.
  3. Remove from heat and with a slotted spoon remove bacon and transfer to plate. You will want to leave bacon fat in pan.
  4. Add onions, garlic, pepper, and bay leaf to pan with bacon fat. Cook for 8 minutes over medium-high heat. You will want onions and garlic browned.
  5. Pour in vinegar. Bring to a simmer. Turn off heat. Add cabbage and bacon. Toss as you would a salad. Discard bay leaf.
  6. Transfer to serving bowl and serve warm.
  7. Serves 6
  8. "Work With What You Got!"
