As summer approaches, family and friends are starting to plan and attend BBQ’s and pool parties. Jennifer and I wanted to come up with an easy and fermented side dish that can be quickly whipped up to bring to any potluck situation. Jennifer’s idea was to make a fresh cole slaw, but use a fermented dressing to toss it in.

We got a ton of fresh herbs, purple cabbage, onion and carrot and then made a fresh herb dressing using Bubbies Fine Foods Sauerkraut!

The recipe is really simple, and can be adjusted depending on the fresh herbs you have available to you. We used parsley, dill and cilantro. When adding the sauerkraut, feel free to add more brine from the jar to the dressing to thin it out or add more kraut flavor. We went with a half cup of brine and kraut together.
