    TheModernJuneCleaver's Note:

    This is an adaptation of my grandmother's recipe, who could whip it up by "eye-balling it". Keep in mind that these measurements are subjective and approximate. Recipes were meant to be tweaked, so adjust to your tastes! If you prefer a sweeter slaw, be heavier on the mayo. I like mine with a little tang, so this recipe has a fair amount of vinegar, but not so much to make it sour. [And no, I'm not breaking code by sharing this recipe. It's nothing top-secret, but it certainly is the best... Then again, maybe I'm just prejudiced...]

    1. 1
      1. Grate the cabbage finely into a large mixing bowl. The second finest side of a four-sized grater is perfect. [Grated cabbage does give the slaw the best texture and doesn't make it as watery as food processors can. This is roughly half a cabbage, give or take.].
    2. 2
      2. Lightly salt and pepper cabbage. Add the sugar. [The sugar brings out flavor; it does not sweeten the slaw.].
    3. 3
      3. Add mayo, vinegar, and half & half, mixing well to emulsify.
    4. 4
      4. Once well incorporated, taste and adjust. For sweeter slaw, add more sugar. Tangier slaw, more vinegar. Careful with liquid ingredients so the slaw isn't slushy.
