    HI,
    Here's one of my favourite salads ever. We eat it alot in Germany, especially at BBQ's. No syns !!!

    You need:
    1x cucumber
    low fat yoghurt
    Dill (dried or fresh)
    Salt and sweetener

    Instructions:
    Peel the cucumber, half it lenght way and take a little tea spoon to scratch out the seeds. Than cut it in very thin slices, add as much yoghurt as you like, add some dill. Season with a bit of salt and sweetener. Leave it in the fridge for 1/2 hour, ready.
    I know it sounds strange, but it's lovely. Enjoy

    Hi Capricon,

    I've just seen that you're living in Germany, didn't know that there's Slimming World. Yes, I am German, from Berlin.
    Found a lovely Krautsalad recipe for you.

    You need:
    1x small cabbage
    1x onion
    oil
    white wine vinegar
    Salt & Pepper
    Sweetener

    Instructions:
    Shred or cut the cabbage and onion in very thin slices. Add seasonings and only 1 tbsp of oil.

    I would leave it for at least an hour in the fridge so that the cabbage softens. Also some lean (in fry light) fried bacon cubes are also nice with it.

    In Bavaria they add caraway seed to it.
    Just try and see.

    Enjoy :)

    Hi there

    We are over here with the forces -and you can get classes on camp but Im doing it online.
    Thanks for that recipe :D Im thinking that white wine vinegar might be that "something" I couldn't put my finger on -I just thought they used ordinary ..
    Guess I will be buying a whire cabbage tomorrow -I love kraut salat but when you work it out the one I get is 1.5syns for 50g :cry:-not much I know -but when I used to sit and have a tub for my lunch :eek:(pre- SW of course) -this way I can make a huge vat of it for just 1tbs of oil :D
    Thankyou soooooo much

    No problem, by the way, if you want the Krautsalad really juicy you have to leave it to soak for a bit longer.
    Should you need more German recipes let me know.

    OMG!!!! Just poppng in between concerts ............. I haven't had kassler for years! I used to love it!!! I used to love stopping at the "schnellies" as we called them (Schnell Imbiss I think they were properly known as) and having a currywurst or zigeunerwurst and chips!!!! I used to work in JHQ and there was a Dutch canteen in the basement - their ham and cream cheese rolls and frikadellen were to die for!!! Not to mention the lovely cakes in all the supermarkets and local bakeries, plus the cheap drinks!!!! It was a miracle I wasn't the size of a house, but I was running round after 2 kids and doing aerobics and swimming about 4 times a week, so that's probably why!!!! :-D

    ah yes! I have made this twice this week and couldn't for the life of me remember where I had seen it! It is DELICIOUS I have made mine using 0% Total and it is so creamy and yummy. I have also made a variety using a pepper mill that I have with a chilli, garlic, lemon blend in it instead of the dill and mmmmmm, I bet this would be great with all kinds of variations. Thank you for sharing! I have just made some to take to my groups buffet evening!
