Hungarian Cabbage Salad

My mama used to make this salad for us a lot. It goes well with any meat and potato dish. I love it and it's a very simple and cheap salad.
This makes 2 servings.

1 medium cabbage, shredded
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup water
1 tablespoon sugar
2 tablespoon oil
2 tablespoon white vinegar
pinch of caraway seeds, (optional)
salt, black pepper to taste


Put shredded cabbage in a large strainer, sprinkle salt, let stand. When cabbage softens drain out the liquid.
In a large salad bowl add the water, vinegar, sugar and a pinch of salt. Mix until sugar is dissolved and put the cabbage in the salad bowl over the vinegar mixture. Add black pepper and caraway seeds
Mix well, taste for seasoning, and leave it in the fridge for a few hours before tossing again and serving.

You can add more or less vinegar, or more sugar, make your dressing tangy or sweet, add garlic to it, go crazy. Perfect salad to go with meat and mashed potatoes.
