Cook Time: 30
Servings: 4-6


1/2 medium cabbage shredded
1/2 red bell pepper sliced
1/2 english cucumber sliced
2 table spoons dill minced
1 clove of garlic minced
1/2 tea spoon of salt
1 table spoon of sugar
1/2 table spoons of olive oil
Juice from half of lemon

I always add some sugar and lemon juice to this salad. They add a special flavor to it. I also like to add half of chopped apple, which I did not have this time. More sugar and lemon juice will only make it better, to my opinion.


Shred the cabbage.


Cut cucumber and red pepper.


First of all: season cabbage with salt and with clean hands mix it, slightly squeezing with your fingers.


Then add red pepper, cucumbers, minced garlic and dill.


Sprinkle with lemon juice, add sugar and oil.  Add more salt if needed.

Serve salad with baked potato or just a barbecued meat.

Welcome To My Blog!

Hi, my name is Olga.  I would like to welcome you to my site.

I created it first of all, to save my family’s recipes and then to share them with my friends and those who have tasted some Russian/Ukrainian food and liked it. But I also would like to introduce it to those who haven’t yet, but would like to.

I will try to keep my recipes simple, but there are few that might require more prep time or ingredients for preparation. You will also find some of my family’s favorite American recipes here and other international cuisines.

I thank you for visiting my site. I hope you will fall in love with Russian/Ukrainian food and will come back again.
