Introduction

This is a favorite Polish dish in our house. I've taken out most of the fat and substituted Splenda for sugar to bring the calories down. When we have bacon on hand, we sprinkle a few crispy bits on top of each serving along with some sour cream and parsley. The color of this soup is gorgeous, and the sweet and sour flavor is delicious. This is a favorite Polish dish in our house.

  • I think the person who added this recipe needs to edit it for servings--there is no way that 6 cups of cabbage, plus all those other ingredients, equal only one serving. I want to try the recipe--it sounds really good--but it needs to be edited to reflect ACTUAL servings, please! - 1/30/16
