red cabbage juice



white bread (crusts removed)



mayonnaise with a little red wine added



red wine vinegar




Preparation method

  • Put the red cabbage juice and the white bread in a container and store in the refrigerator.
  • Pass the contents through a fine-meshed sieve and use the back of a spoon to squeeze as much juice as possible from the bread.
  • Purée the juice with the mayonnaise and season to taste with red wine vinegar and salt.
  • Pass through a sieve and store in the refrigerator until needed. Do, however, make this recipe on the day you use it as the flavours quickly fade away.

Serving suggestions

  • As an amuse-bouche or a cold starter, e.g. with apple, roast onions and pork belly.
  • Nice combination with mustard ice cream.
