Very tasty and creamy! I Used 6 cups (420 grams) shredded green cabbage, 1/4 tsp salt and 1/2 tsp. black pepper. I did add 1 tsp celery seeds. Although I was skeptical about the cream making the slaw runny, it didn't. I will be making this again and again. So very easy. Thanks for a very good recipe, Miss Annie.
