Cole Slaw Recipe

The original salad was made to serve with fresh caught fish.

However, it goes well with many other meats and vegetables. It is delicious on top of a Chili hot dog.

To serve it with your favorite Barbacue Chicken, pulled pork or bbq or baked beans, substitute 2 tablespoons of BBQ Sauce for 2 tablespoons of the mayonnaise.

You can also make this cole slaw using white or green cabbage.

Cole Slaw Recipe

4 cups finely grated cabbage

1/2 cup chopped dill pickles

1/4 cup salad dressing*

1/4 cup mayonnaise

1 tablespoon vinegar

1/2 teaspoon celery seed (optional)

1/4 teaspoon salt

*This type salad dressing is the kind that is in a jar and looks like mayonnaise. It is a cooked dressing and is sweeter than mayonnaise. If you don't like a slightly sweeten salad, omit the dressing and substitute an additional 1/4 cup mayonnaise.

How To Make A Cabbage Bowl

Wash Cabbage and pat dry. Set it on a flat surface to see if it sits balanced. If not, trim the bottom with a paring knife to make it level.

Place cabbage on a cutting board onto it's side. Remove 1/2 to 1 inches from the top, slicing downward with a kitchen knife. (Save the top to be grated for your recipe.)

Cut the top opening diameter large enough to insert a small glass bowl into the cavity to hold your slaw. This prevents your dressing from leaking.

Next, using a vegetable or fruit corer take out the inside of your cabbage, leaving an outer shell (your cabbage bowl).

When enough cabbage is removed to accommodate your insert, place it into the cavity and set aside.

Mix your slaw ingredients together and fill your bowl. Using the back of a spoon, spread slaw, hiding the outer edges of insert.

Refrigerate salad a few hours for best flavor. Serve on a platter.

Lovely for your cook-out or party!
