Spicy Cabbage Salad / Ljuta salata od kupusa

Despite the weather being so hot and humid lately, I’ve been craving spicy foods like crazy. Obviously, I enjoy sweating all the time. 😀

This salad is super simple, keeps in fridge for days and is even better on the second day, when the cabbage gets juicy and all the flavours have enough time to mingle. Also, one head of cabbage yields a mountain of salad that can feed an army. You have been warned.

METHOD:

In a small saucepan whisk together vinegar, sugar, salt and chili flakes. Bring to a boil, remove from heat and stir until sugar and salt have completely dissolved. Allow to sit for a few minutes so that chilli flakes infuse the vinegar mixture. Depending on strength of your chili and your personal preferences regarding spicy food, you might want to adjust the chili amount. Mine was mouth-scorching hot, so ½ a teaspoon was more than enough.

Meanwhile, wash the veggies, peel and grate carrots and thinly slice the cabbage. You can help yourself out with mandolin if you have one. Toss together with dressing and serve chilled. This salad keeps fantastic for days when stored in fridge in an airtight container.


Usprkos tome što je vrijeme u zadnje vrijeme vruće i sparno, meni se jede ljuta hrana kao nikad. Očito je da se volim prekomjerno i neprekidno znojiti. 😀

Ova salata je super jednostavna, može u frižideru stajati danima, a još je finija idući dan, kada kupus malo omekša i svi sastojci su imali vremena da malo prominglaju. Također, jedna glavica kupusa biti će vam dosta za brdo salate kojom možete nahraniti vojsku. Tek toliko da vas upozorim.

SASTOJCI:

(Za barem 6 porcija / 0,89 kn po porciji / 5,31 kn za sve)

Za dressing:

½ šalice jabučnog octa (0,50 kn)

1 žlica šećera (0,05 kn)

½ žličice soli (0,01 kn)

½ žličice sušenog čilija u pahuljicama (0,25 kn)

Za salatu:

1 mala glavica kupusa (3,00 kn)

3 velike mrkve (1,50 kn)

PRIPREMA:

U malom lončiću pomiješajte ocat, šećer, sol i čili. Pustite da zavrije, skinite s vatre i promiješajte da se šećer i sol do kraja rastope. Pustite da sve odstoji par minuta da pahuljice čilija puste okus u ocat. Ovisno o tome koliko vam je čili ljut i kakve su vam osobne preference, prilagodite količinu čilija. Moj je bio toliko ljut da pali usta, pa je ½ žličice bilo sasvim dovoljno.

U međuvremenu operite povrće, ogulite i naribajte mrkvu i tanko narežite kupus. Možete sipomoći sa mandolinom, ako ju imate. Sve pomiješajte sa dresingom i poslužite ohlađeno. Ova salata se danima super drži u frižideru ako ju čuvate u hermetički zatvorenoj posudi.
