Xhristos Razhdaiyaktsya from MARY STADNYK . . . and Ukrainian COLESLAW


            Based on UKRAINIAN CUISINE published in Kiev, 1975:  the recipe in the book is called “Cabbage, Tomato, and Carrot Salad”.

500 gr cabbage
150 gr carrots
100 gr green onions
3 tbsp oil
4 tbsp vinegar
1 tsp sugar (book calls for 1 ½ tbsp.)
1 tsp salt
¼ tsp pepper   (Pepper not called for in the book)
280 gr tomatoes

·        Grate cabbage finely.  (Mom always did this for coleslaw, too.)
·        Place in skillet.  Add salt & vinegar and heat just until you see steam rising.  Do not overcook.
·        Turn cabbage out immediately into a salad bowl.
·        Chop onions finely.
·        Grate carrots.  (I did them coarsely.  Mom would have done them finely.)
·        Add onions and carrots to salad bowl along with oil, sugar, and pepper.
·        Stir and taste for seasoning.
·        Top with sliced tomatoes.
