Globecooking recipe : Kielbasa & Polish Coleslaw (Poland)

Kielbasa is probably the most well-known of Polish sausages - the name actually means sausage in Polish - and eating them, freshly grilled, on a (fake) pirate ship in Gdynia harbour will rank as one of the gastronomical highs of my work trip to Poland. They're salty, juicy and slightly smoky - utterly delicious, whether they're served with chips or baked potato.

Both options came with a fantastic version of coleslaw, containing not just the usual white cabbage and carrot in mayonnaise but also very finely sliced radish and cucumber. I also discovered that Polish mustard isn't hot at all - I usually don't like mustard but I couldn't stop dipping my kielbasa in this one !

Fancy trying out some more Polish cuisine? How about Bigos, Pirogi or Golabki?

  3. oooh love the look of this coleslaw. I often add onions but never thought of raddish. Thanks for linking up
