I thought sure I had posted this one but I couldn't find it. This is the Bavarian salad you'll be served with a lot of meals in Munich.

Bavarian Style White Cabbage Salad with Bacon
1 medium head of cabbage
1 onion
100 ml beef broth
6 tbls. wine vinegar
6 tbls. sunflower oil
1 tbls. caraway seeds
1 tbls. sugar
125 g. bacon

Wash, core and finely shred the cabbage. Dice the onion. Add to a large bowl. Generously salt the vegetables, then toss to coat and knead by hand to work the salt into the cabbage and start the brining process. Let cabbage sit for 1 hour.

Pour the cabbage into a colander to toss and drain away the excess brine. Return to the bowl.

Pour the hot broth over the cabbage. Make a dressing with the vinegar, oil, sugar, caraway, and pepper. Stir into the cabbage and mix well.

Allow the salad to sit for 1 hour to marinate before serving. In the meantime, dice the bacon and roast or fry it until crispy.

Just before serving, stir into the salad.
