Easy Pickled Cabbage

Easy Pickled Cabbage | giverecipe.com

Do you like having pickled cabbage as a side dish with your favorite main dish? Pickled veggies are generally prefered with stews in our cuisine. The most common dish paired with pickles is beans with meat, but I can eat them with anything, even plain. You already know my love of pickles.

You love pickles, but don’t you have time to make some? I have a great recipe of pickled cabbage for you which will be ready in 10 minutes! This is another dish from my childhood. Mom would make this easy pickled cabbage whenever she made cabbage rolls. You know the thick parts of cabbage are cut when making rolls, so are we going to waste these cut parts? No way! I don’t know if this is something created by mom or if all women make it in the same way. But I’m sure you will love it. Of course you don’t need to make cabbage rolls first to make this pickled cabbage. You can just make it from a whole cabbage too.

    What a great use of the thicker ends! I typically slice them thinly to use it… but this is a nice way to segway of a different recipe :)

    Annem bol limon dilimleriyle hazırlar, sonra da sıcak bir yerde (kalorifer yanı gibi) üç dört gün bekletirdi. Tadı harika olurdu. Ama senin tarifin çok daha kolaymış, hiç bekletme yok. Hemen deneyeceğim. Güzel tarifin için teşekkürler. Sevgiler:)

    It amazes me just how similar our dishes are… I grew up on this stuff. After mom prepared the sarma, we knew that this salad was coming up next…and we loved it! Thank you for reminding me of this delicious salad.

    I am very curious to try this, to see how “pickled” this tastes. And it’s so easy and quick! Thanks for the cool idea :-)
