Scrumptious Slaw Recipe

As I mentioned a while ago – in my Baking …. Basil and Cultivating …. Cabbage entry the Third Graders at our School were participating in the Burpee Cabbage Contest and I was lucky enough to score some cabbage seedlings.  Honestly, I’ve never grown cabbage before, I know they’re cooler weather crops and the way that my peppers and squash have been fairing the past few years – I was kind of nervous trying a new veggie.  But they were free – and I figured WHY NOT? The least it could get me would be a “I learned my lesson blog post”. The best thing it could get me was some delicious coleslaw.  Luckily for me and Nick’s belly we got the latter.



Susie’s Scrumptious Coleslaw Recipe


1 head of green cabbage (chopped or finely shredded)

2 Medium sized carrots – finely shredded

1 cup of Mayo (our cabbage is so large – a cup works for me but you may want to use 3/4 cups for a regular sized head)

1/4 cup of Apple Cider Vinegar (great for soaking veggies to get pests off too)

2 tablespoons of sour cream

2 tablespoons of granulated sugar

2 tablespoons of red onion (finely chopped *cries*)

2 tablespoons of Dijon Mustard

2 pinches of Kosher Sea Salt

2 pinches of Caraway Seeds

Freshly ground pepper – to taste



Cut cabbage in halves – being sure to discard core. Chop cabbage and shred carrots (I used a cheese grater) and combine in a large bowl.  I accidentally mixed the Mayo in with the cabbage and carrots – prematurely but it worked beautifully. In a separate bowl – combine other ingredients and whisk gently.  Then add liquid mixture to cabbage and carrot  bowl. Add additional salt and pepper to taste and chill.



**Please note – I am NOT a chef – by any means of the word.  However – this recipe does get the Nick Frost Stamp of Approval. AND he is, by far, the most critical food critic there is**

  1. Interesting! Latvians add caraway seeds to cabbage salad traditionally. I will try this recipe, too, love salads!
