Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup light mayonnaise
  • 2 tablespoons cider vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons sugar
  • Coarse salt and ground pepper
  • 1/2 head green cabbage (1 1/2 pounds), cut lengthwise into thirds and thinly sliced crosswise
  • 2 medium carrots, sliced with a julienne peeler or a vegetable peeler
  • 2 medium scallions, minced

Directions

  1. In a medium bowl, combine mayonnaise, vinegar, and sugar; season with salt and pepper. Add cabbage, carrots, and scallions; mix to combine. Let stand at least 15 minutes at room temperature to soften cabbage, or cover and refrigerate up to 1 day.

Cook's Notes

If you don't have a julienne peeler, simply slice the carrots into ribbons with a vegetable peeler, then cut the ribbons into long, thin strips.

    Also, the idea of cutting the cabbage only in half, and then slicing, makes a more dramatic pressentation and cuts down on the food placed on a plate......so your pschy is placated and you can still have a lot of slaw....... no extra sugar, nothing further added.

    This is my favorite recipe for coleslaw. But I have one that you might like as well. It lends to a Polynesian type meal. It is just coleslaw cut the same way as described and depending on how much you make of the slaw.... just add some frozen, concentrated pineapple orange juice (still frozen) to some real mayo and you can thin it as desired with water.

    This is very delicious and simple. I have found that grating the carrots with my box grater and chopping the cabbage rather than slicing or shredding works well too! I mix my chopped green onions into the dressing and that gives the slaw a wonderful flavor. One of my favorites!!

    This is a super easy, super yummy recipe. It was so easy that my husband made it all by himself. So yummy, we made another batch the next night. We'll be using this for our barbecue this summer. Soooo good!!

    I made this for a barbecue, and it was very easy to make and it tasted great. Instead of green cabbage, I used purple, and the colour gave a nice impact flecked with the orange carrots.
