Kid Friendly Coleslaw
Our Farmhouse Delivery bushel keeps sending us cabbage. I keep giving it away. Finally I decided that it was some sign that I needed to figure out a way to enjoy cabbage because what on earth does one do with 4 heads of cabbage piling up in the refrigerator?
I'm starting simple and easy with coleslaw that the kids helped me make - and therefore ate themselves!
1/2 head green Cabbage
2 large Carrots
4 stalks of Celery
1/2 cup Mayonnaise
2 Tbs Red Wine Vinegar
1 Tbs Coconut Sugar
the juice from 1 large Lemon
Salt & Pepper to taste
Cut stalk out of the cabbage, then cut the cabbage in half. Take the 1/2 Cabbage and cut thin slices, keeping the Cabbage together as much as possible. Turn the Cabbage 90 degrees, and make another pass of thin slices.
Using a Julienne Slicer, slice the Carrots long ways to make long, thin strips. Watch your fingers!
Split the Celery stalks in half, then cut into small bites.
Mix the Cabbage, Carrots, and Celery together in a large bowl.
In a smaller bowl, mix the Mayonnaise, Vinegar, Sugar, and Lemon Juice.
Add Salt & Pepper to taste. I went quite heavy on the Pepper with great results.
Slowly incorporate the dressing with the Cabbage mixture until you have the desired ratio of greens-to-dressing. Add more Salt and Pepper if needed.
Eat immediately! Like most slaws, this is best fresh.
