Cabbage Salad

I just love this cabbage salad. It's so fresh, crunchy and has about 20 kcal in 100g!
You will need:
1 green cabbage
2 carrots
1 tsp of dill seeds 
15-20 peppercorns
2-3 bay leaves
2 Tbsp of salt
3 Tbsp of vinegar (I use white rice vinegar, but regular vinegar will work too)

Prepare a pickle. Boil 1 liter of water, add bay leaves, peppercorns, and salt. Boil for 5 minutes. Turn off the heat and let it cool. When the liquid is cool (or at least warm), add 3 Tbsp of vinegar.
