Quick Pickled Cabbage

This quick pickled cabbage is crunchy, sweet and spicy. Can go as a side dish to a dinner, can accompany meats (Polish kotlety schabowe), potato casserole or any dish that needs a kick.

It’s ready to eat on the very next day. Use fresh young spring cabbage to get the best of it.

Most importantly quick pickled cabbage can be stored in refrigerator for even 2 months, but don’t worry, usually it disappears before then:)

Recipe I use comes from my sister’s private recipe book.
