Tid: 15 minutter
Vanskelighetsgrad: Enkel

 

Hva trenger du:

  • 1/3 hodekål
  • 2 store Granny Smith epler
  • 2 stenger selleri
  • 1/3 kopp kremfløte (her er det bare kremfløte som duger!)
  • 1/3 kopp eplesideredikk
  • 2 ss Dijon-sennep
  • 1 ts sellerifrø
  • 1 ts cayennepepper
  • 2 ss melis (evt vanlig sukker)
  • Salt & pepper

 

Fremgangsmåte:Grønn kålsalat med eple og fløte

Finn frem en stor salatbolle, og hell oppi fløte, edikk, sennep, sellerifrø, cayenne, sukker og litt salt og pepper. Visp alt godt sammen. Om du bruker vanlig sukker og ikke melis, pass på at du visper til alt sukkeret er oppløst. Kutt hodekålen i tynne strimler, eplene kan kuttes i tynne skiver eller i terninger, ettersom hvor mye tekstur du ønsker å få fra dem. Finhakk stangsellerien. Hiv alt oppå dressingen, og bland det godt. Ideelt sett bør salaten få stå noen timer i kjøleskapet før servering, da smaker den bedre.

Spicy coleslaw with vinegar dressing

Spicy slaw and other sides are vital to a perfect BBQ party!A lot of people like the creamy coleslaw I have posted about earlier on this site. I think it’s perfect on buns for burgers and pulled pork. But as a side to steak, pork chops, bratwurst and more – I personally prefer a vinegar based coleslaw. Another plus of course is that a vinegar based coleslaw is super healthy and almost free of calories, which means I can eat even more smoked meat. So, how about this for a spicy, vinegary slaw for your next BBQ?

Time: 15 minutes
Skill Level: Easy

 

What you will need:

  • 1/2 a head of cabbage
  • 3 carrots
  • 1-6 finely chopped fresh chilies (depending on the level of fire you want)
  • 1 tsp maldon salt
  • 1 tsp celery seed
  • 1 tsp freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/2 cup of cider vinegar
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 tbsp dijon mustard
  • Some hot sauce

 

How to do it:

Find yourself a large salad bowl, and chuck in the salt, celery seed, pepper, vinegar, olive oil, mustard, and a couple tsp of your favorite hot sauce. Whisk it all together into a lovely dressing, adding more salt/pepper/hot sauce to taste. Chop your cabbage, carrots and chilies the way you like them (I’m lazy, so I grate it all in my food processor…), and throw it in there. Mix well. I think this slaw tastes best if I make it in the morning and let it sit in the fridge until dinner time. Enjoy!

Sweet (and possibly spicy) pickle relish

picklerelishPickle relish is fantastic. Nothing beats a good smoked bratwurst in a homemade bun, slathered with homemade IPA mustard and some delicious relish. Now that’s a hot dog! A cool thing about this recipe, is that it’s the only way I know of to make something pickled in less than half an hour. This one is ready to eat right off the bat. That’s pretty cool. This recipe should make for about one large mason jar type container, so just double it if you need more.

Time: 30 minutes
Skill Level: Easy

You’re going to need:
4 pickling cucumbers (those smallish ones)
1/2 of a yellow onion
1 Large green pepper
1 cup of apple cider vinegar
1/2 cup of honey
Red chili flakes (if you want it spicy)
Celery seed
Yellow mustard seed

How to do it:

  • Grate the pepper, onion and pickling cucumber.
  • Put them in a sieve and drain some of the water out squeezing them gently with your hands or some kind of spoon implement. Put all the grated vegetables in a pot with DSC_1584the vinegar and the honey
  • Bring to a boil, and add a tablespoon or two of mustard seed, a pinch of celery seed, and as much chili flakes as you want. I use chili flakes that are quite hot, so for me about a teaspoon is enough for this one
  • Let it simmer until desired consistency is reached
  • Put in sterilized jars and enjoy delicious homemade relish for months to come
  • And hey – it’s great on burgers too!
