The restaurant Northwoods Inn or Clearmans serves this slaw. I normally do not like cabbage, but this salad is delish!

This recipe is a favorite staple of mine. I have been eating it for years and have cleaned it up just a bit. It is great for those of you who are snackers and need to lose weight or want to maintain your weight. You can eat as much of this as you want. I recommend changing the sugar for fresh apple juice. You can omit the lawerys season salt (not to much healthy stuff in that item). As far as how much apple juice...just do it to taste. IT WORKS great.

Tastes just like the salad at the restaurant! It gets better the longer it marinates. Since the flavor of cabbage can vary somewhat, be flexible with your seasonings. Some may require a little more sugar, etc. This is really beautiful to use as a "bed" to serve meat on. Goes absolutely fabulous with a grilled ribeye!

I lived in California for 54 years and have eaten at the Clearman restaurants since I was 25. When I moved to Oklahoma, with 2/3 of my close family, they wanted me to try to make the Northwoods Inn Purple Cabbage Salad. I tried several recipes but think this one is the closest. The only thing I add to it is about a 1/2 teaspoon of horseradish.
