Surówka - Polish Cole Slaw

I love Surówka.  My kids do as well.  Surówka is a raw salad.  There are many varieties of Surówka, and all will say the name of the main ingredient.

This is the recipe for Surówka z białej kapusty, or Raw salad from white cabbage...  Polish Cole slaw.


1/2 small head of White Cabbage
1 Carrot, washed and peeled
1 Apple*, washed and peeled
2-3 tablespoons Sunflower Oil
1-2 tablespoons Lemon Juice
1/2-1 tablespoon Sugar**
Salt and Pepper to taste


Pinch of Caraway seeds
1/4 Sweet Onion

Grate the cabbage.  Sprinkle lightly with salt and squeeze together to make the cabbage more tender.

Grate the carrot and apple and mix into cabbage.  If using onion, grate and mix in.

Add remaining ingredients, stir together well and allow to sit in the refrigerator about an hour to allow the flavors to blend.

* I personally prefer using a Granny Smith apple for this but any apple will work, it will just affect the flavor to be more or less sweet.

** The sweeter the apple, the less sugar to use.
