red cabbage & apple salad

In case your local super market has a bag of sliced cabbage in stock. Grab it! With an apple, boiled eggs, and some leftover Fuet. You whip up a salad! In no time

The French Salade de Chou Rouge is probably the closest dish. That comes to my Red Cabbage & Apple Salad. The base of both salads is a good vinaigrette. Aka salad sauce. The French version is with mustard. Mine is with lemon juice. That will prevent your salad from colouring. So if you have your salad sauce in place, the only thing “to cook” is a couple of eggs 



  1. a bag of washed and sliced red cabbage
  2. an apple
  3. 2 eggs
  4. 1/3 of a fuet (spanish sausage)


salad sauce 

  1. 1 cup of Olive Oil
