Ingredients

  • 1 medium cabbage head thinly diced
  • 1 medium beet peeled and grated
  • 1 small red onion finely diced
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • 1/2 inch ginger piece grated
  • 2 bunch fresh parsley finely chopped
  • 1 apple cut into thin slices
  • 1 cup fresh cranberries cut into halves
  • 1/3 cup raisins
  • 1/2 cup pumpkin seeds lightly toasted (if you are on a raw diet, do not toast the seeds)
  • 1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil

Instructions

  • In a large bowl add the beet, cabbage, onion, ginger and salt, and massage well with your hands, until the cabbage softens and leaves its water into the bowl.
  • Transfer the mixture with the juices into a very clean jar with a lid.
  • Press the mixture to eliminate air bubbles and cover it completely with its liquid.
  • Lid the jar and keep onto the counter for about three days, until it smells and taste lightly sour, but clean (you will recognise the smell!)
  • Refrigerate for two days, then use it to make this salad.
  • Add the sauerkraut into a large bowl, together with the the rest of the ingredients.
  • Mix to combine and serve.
