Red cabbage salad
500 g red cabbage
3 jacket-boiled potatoes
1 pickled cucumber
2-3 st. l. vegetable oil.
Chop the cabbage, scald with boiling water to brighten the color. Add chilled, peeled and diced potatoes. Season the salad with vegetable oil mixed with chopped onions and sprinkle with finely chopped pickles.
