Cooking cabbage, apples and carrots:
Step 1: prepare the cabbage.
From cabbage, remove stale leaves and leaves that have begun to become covered with dark spots. Rinse the rest with warm running water. Remove the stump, as it is bitter and unsuitable for eating. Put the remaining juicy, green and white leaves on a cutting board, press firmly with your hand and cut into very thin stripes.
Step 2: prepare the carrots.
Peel the carrots using a special knife. After that, be sure to rinse the root crop with warm water, washing off the remnants of dirt and adhering earth from it. Grate carrots prepared in this way on a medium grater.
Step 3: prepare the apple.
An apple, just like carrots, can first be peeled and then chopped on a medium grater, without forgetting to remove the core with seeds. And you can not remove the peel from the fruit and cut it into strips with a knife. Here it all depends only on your wishes.
Step 4: prepare the lemon.
Wash the lemon, divide into two halves and, using a simple device, squeeze the juice from it into the bowl. In this case, immediately remove seeds and large pieces of pulp from it so that they do not get into the salad.
Step 5: mix the salad of cabbage, apples and carrots.
Mix salad with cabbage. Pour it into a deep plate, salt and shake hands. If you are cooking from young cabbage, you can skip this step. Then add apples to it and pour with lemon juice, mix. After pour the carrots. Salt again if you feel the need, and again mix all the salad ingredients together well. And lastly, season the dish with vegetable oil. For a richer taste, you can let the finished salad stand for a while at room temperature, but I prefer to immediately serve it on the table.
Step 6: serve a salad of cabbage, apples and carrots.
Cabbage, apple and carrot salad served as a side dish for meat and fish dishes. It is especially tasty to eat it with poultry or meat, grilled or an open fire. For beauty, you can decorate the finished dish with apple slices, sprigs of herbs or feathers of onions. That's all, it remains only to enjoy a light, healthy and fragrant salad.

- You can also use yogurt, sour cream or mayonnaise as a dressing.
- Lemon juice can be replaced with vinegar, but in this case, this salad will be much more harmful to your stomach.
- Some housewives prepare this salad with raisins, without adding salt, as the dish as a result turns out to be sweet. Accordingly, the apple in this case is better to choose not sour.
- If your salad happened to be slightly sour, just add a little sugar to it.
