This is a GREAT standard slaw recipe! I always add celery seed to my slaws- i think it is the secret ingredient to a fabulous slaw! To make it healthier I add some fat free greek yogurt and Walden's mayo in place of the regular mayo.
- 6 -7 cups green cabbage, cored, shredded
- 6 -7 cups red cabbage, cored, shredded (or use all red or all green)
- 2 teaspoons caraway seeds (or celery seeds)
- 1⁄2 cup mayonnaise
- 2 tablespoons white vinegar
- 1 teaspoon dijon-style mustard
- 1 teaspoon sugar
- 2 carrots, peeled and grated
- 1 small sweet onion, minced
