Cook Time

Prep time: 20 min
Ready in: 20 min
Yields: 2 ½ -3 cups

Ingredients

  • ½ head cabbage, sliced to ribbons
  • 2-3 carrots, grated
  • 1 bunch green onions, diced
  • ¼ cup sugar
  • ¼ cup red wine vinegar
  • 1 tsp. Old Bay Seasoning, the kind for seafood & poultry
  • to taste: salt & pepper
  • 2-4 TBSP. mayonnaise, I like the olive oil based one by Best Foods
  • dollop Dijon mustard

How to Do It:

  1. Slice cabbage into ribbons, and slice ribbons into thirds.
  2. Dice green onions, separating white dice from the green.
  3. Heat small amount of oil in pan. Add white diced onions to this and let saute for a minute or two.
  4. Deglaze with vinegar. Careful! It will spit!
  5. Add sugar. The sequence is important, because we're not looking for candied onions, but a gastrique.
  6. Cook down until the vinegar odor rising from pan stops--about 3-5 minutes.
  7. Remove from heat, place in bowl, and cool. I stack a small bowl on top of a bigger bowl of ice to expedite this.
  8. Grate carrots. I do this on top of a paper towel, so that when I'm finished, I can just fold away those irksome shreds & have a clean cutting board with minimal effort.
  9. Combine all veggies in bowl.
  10. Add mayo, gastrique, & mustard.
  11. Add Old Bay Seasoning & salt & pepper.
  12. Toss.
  13. Done!! :)

There it is there, then!

      I love cole slaw, and it is almost the time of the year I start making it more. I like to get lots of veggies in my diet, and this is a great way. I actually misplaced my last recipe, and although it would be pretty easy to find one, I will try your version (or close to it) next time. It sounds good! And as for the salad recipe I commented on the other day (I didn't end up making it yet), I am getting ready to make it tonight. I bought the rest of the ingredients recently.

      Thanks for adding another recipe to my virtual cookbook! You have quite a collection!

      Have a good evening, CharronsChatter!

      Thank you very much, Peach Purple! That is a great compliment, and I bet yours is much better than you're saying. Once I get a hang of navigating here in Hubland--I would love to have a look! Please send a link, if you think of it, and have a great day, besides. :)
