Celery Cabbage Salad

Celery Cabbage SaladThis is a family favorite for Daweezy and I, we have always just called it “Celery Cabbage.” It’s like a warm salad with a vinegar base.

Ingredients ~

Napa Cabbage
Bacon
Vinegar
Sugar
Onion (OPTIONAL!!)
(** Depending on how much you want to make, you will be adjusting the amount you use. I always make a half batch by getting a smaller cabbage, use 1/2 pkg of bacon, and 1 cup-ish of each the vinegar and sugar)

Directions ~

  1. Dice up the bacon (whole pkg for large batch, 1/2 pkg for smaller batch) and fry it up – our family uses regular or maple, depending on which side of the argument we are on 🙂 I personally love Maple! Some find that cutting it while frozen is easier, I just use my kitchen scissors.
  2. While the bacon is frying, chop up your cabbage (and onion, if you’re into that) and put it in the bowl you’ll be serving from, give it a good, healthy dose of pepper and some salt. {this is seriously my favorite part, try a bite of that cabbage, SOO good raw!!}
  3. Once your bacon is cooked to your preferred consistency (burn or not burnt, another family argument there!), use a slotted spoon to scoop it out of the pan and add it to your cabbage.
  4. Remove all but approximately 2 tbsp. of your bacon grease, add your sugar and vinegar to the pan. If you are making a large batch, start with 2 cups each, smaller batch 1 cup each. Time to start the tear gas, bring your vinegar mix to a boil. Stir until the sugar is completely dissolved.
  5. Now, try the mix and see how you like it, you may need to add a bit more vinegar or sugar depending on how sweet or zippy you want it. I  always end up adding an extra dash of vinegar.
  6. When you have it just right, remove it from the heat and let it cool a bit so it will not wilt your cabbage leaves.
  7. Pour over your cabbage and mix well

Enjoy! It is the BEST fresh/warm. When you are eating leftovers, heat it up just a bit in the microwave.
