Polish red cabbage salad or “surówka z czerwonej kapusty” is a very common dish on our table. I make it several times throughout the year on casual Sundays, birthdays, or at the beginning of autumn.

That’s the period when red cabbage is already fully grown and harvested.

And I just like to eat it with my favorite autumn dish which is oven-roasted duck tights with easy potato pancakes or “lokše” in Slovak.

Nevertheless, since I live in Poland red cabbage salad is often eaten on Sunday lunches with Polish “schabowy” or other types of roasted meat.

The Polish red cabbage salad recipe is very easy and will take only a few minutes.

And how can you make the polish red cabbage salad?
