Surówka is a Polish sauerkraut, carrot and apple salad that’s healthy and delicious. Enjoy!
Our friends from Poland shared their Surówka recipe with us. Pronounced suˈrufka, it’s a sauerkraut, carrot, apple and onion salad. Especially, they said, that it’s delicious with fish.
However, I was planning to serve pork tenderloin tonight and just couldn’t wait to try it. And boy, it’s yummy. I had to share it with you.
• a carrot
• an apple
• half of an onion
• extra-virgin olive oil
• salt and pepper

- If you do serve your surówka with fish, our friends said to add the juice of two fresh lemons.
- Also, I substituted their recommended tablespoon of sugar with Stevia.
- Fermented sauerkraut is so healthy. And it’s easy to make your own. For store bought, I recommend Bubbies Of San Francisco Sauerkraut. It has live cultures, and no sugar, vinegar or preservatives. Just great taste.
- I had delicious apples on hand when I made this recipe. A tart Granny Smith, Honeycrisp, or Macintosh apple would stand up well to the flavor of the sauerkraut.
Tasty surówka is an easy, healthy, raw side dish that’s delicious with dinner. But I also can picture serving it at a summer party picnic or barbecue.
