Swedish Pizza Salad Recipe

Swedish pizza salad
This salad is not really authentic Swedish, neither does it have much connection with a pizza. The salad was most likely introduced by immigrants who set up pizza restaurants in Sweden. And this salad is offered at the pizza restaurants hence the name pizza salad. It is usually included in the price of the pizza and you can eat as much as you want. 

The salad is really easy to prepare, and the result is delicious, nutritious and light on your wallet!  You can make extra and keep it in the refrigerator for a few days. The taste should get better over time as the cabbage cures even more.

Shown below is the recipe for the standard salad. In the photo you can see that I added chilli. The ‘authentic’ pizza salad has pepper but not chillis. Also I sliced the cabbage quite thick, generally it is sliced really thinly, probably between ½ - 1 millimeter. So the salad in the photo is even less authentic but delicious nevertheless. 

About half a cabbage, very thinly sliced
1 onion (optional)
2-4 tablespoons white vinegar (depending on taste)
2-4 tablespoons oil (depending on taste)

1. Place the cabbage in a large bowl
2. Combine all the rest of the ingredients in a separate bowl and add to the cabbage
3. Mix well, taste for seasoning and adjust if necessary
4. Chill in the refrigerator overnight. The salad will keep for a few days
