Cabbage Salad, Garlic III (P, KLP, TNT)
Source: Unknown
Serves: 12

1 medium cabbage, finely shredded
1/2 cup oil
1/2 cup vinegar
1/2 cup sugar (or substitute)
Crushed fresh garlic..........I use the bottled "fresh" kind and lots of it! Depends on how lethal you want it to be!

Blend oil, vinegar, sugar, and garlic very well.

I use a food processor and blend until thick and creamy. Pour over prepared cabbage and let it stand for a few hours before serving.

Poster's Notes:
Occasionally I add in some finely chopped celery leaves or even parsley......just for a colour contrast, really, with the cabbage. Does give it a more interesting look!

Be brave with the garlic..........that's what gives this salad "attitude"!

This is a wonderful alternative to the usual Cole Slaw or Sauerkraut. Excellent for barbeques......or as we call them in South Africa, a "braaivleis". Pronounced "braai" to rhyme with "sigh", and "vleis" to rhyme with "case", but important to remember that the "v" is said softly, as if it was an "f"! We generally just refer to it as a "braai."
