Tiffany Inspired Cole Slaw

Cole Slaw 2

Mary Ellen’s Colorful Cole Slaw

I use red cabbage instead of the traditional green. The red cabbage has a spicier flavor and the visual impact with the orange color of the carrots is gorgeous! As a side dish, this easily serves 8-10 people.

½ large head of red cabbage, shredded  (approximately 8 cups)

6 medium carrots, grated (approximately 2 ½ cups)

¼ cup red wine vinegar

1 cup Hellman’s real mayonnaise (no substitutes!)

¼ tsp salt

¼ to ½ tsp freshly ground black pepper (to taste)

½ to 1 tsp sugar (this is supposed to be a little tart rather than sweet, but I taste and adjust as necessary)

2 T fresh chopped parsley

Put prepared cabbage and carrots together in a large mixing bowl. Add vinegar and toss to coat. Add mayonnaise and repeat. Sprinkle in salt, pepper and sugar. Add parsley for final toss. Transfer to a nice serving bowl. For an extra WOW factor, garnish with edible flowers such as pansies or nasturtiums!
