Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cut the cabbage in half and then in quarters and cut out the cores.
  2. Set up the food processor with the slicing blade and place the pieces of cabbage, one at a time, lying horizantally in the feed tube.
  3. Place the feed tube pusher on top and turn on the processor. Don't push on the feed tube pusher or the slices will turn out too thick! Continue with the remaining red and green cabbage quarters.
  4. Transfer into a large bowl, discarding any very large pieces. Before you pour the dressing on the salad, save a handful of the grated vegetables to decorate for serving.
  5. Change the slicing blade for the large shredding blade and cut the carrots so they also lie down in the feed tube. Since the carrots are hard, replace the feed tube pusher and press firmly with the food processor on. Transfer to bowl with the cabbages. Now add chopped green onions.
  6. In a medium bowl, whisk together the mayonnaise, both mustards, vinegar, celery salt, kosher salt, and pepper.
  7. Pour enough mayonnaise dressing over the grated vegetables and moisten well.
  8. Add crumbled blue cheese and parsley and toss together.
  9. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and refrigerate for several hours to allow the flavors to meld.
  10. Serve cold or at room temperature.

Well, this is awesome. I used half the mayo, and it was plenty creamy for me. Perfect, in fact!

I used shredded slaw from the store - 1 3/4 bag. Carrots were already in the pre-made shredded cabbage bags. No onions here. Also, a little less celery salt (personal preference.) This is amazing!!! Very creamy, just enough blue cheese. When making it, I thought it seemed "too little" blue cheese, but in reality, it was perfect. I let it set for several hours for the flavors to blend. A total hit. We are making it and taking it with us out of town for Thanksgiving. Highly recommend.

This was easy and exceptionally good. Even my somewhat picky ten year-old son loved it - he took two helpings.
