  • 1 pound cabbage
  • 1 large carrot
  • 1/2 small onion


  • 1 tbsp distilled vinegar
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 tbsp white sugar
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper
  • 1/2 tsp celery seeds


  • Mix dressing ingredients well in a bowl and set aside.
  • Chop very thin cabbage and onion. Shred the carrot. A food processor works great for this.
  • Mix dressing and salad ingredients together and store in the fridge for a few hours before serving.


I usually double this recipe for a crowd.
