Basic Southern Coleslaw

Cabbage

Basic Southern Coleslaw

Every southern cook knows that to make good coleslaw, you need some cabbage, Duke’s Mayonnaise, vinegar, pinch of sugar, salt and pepper.  Easy as that!  My mom made this recipe throughout my childhood.  So does her sister, as well as my cousins!  It is a kitchen staple.  Right now, the cabbage is ready on our farm, so let’s get to making some slaw!

Ingredients:

  • ½ head of cabbage grated (can use a food processor, box grater, or a mandolin slicer)
  • ¼ cup of Dukes mayonnaise (or make your own! Google it)
  • 1 tsp of sugar (or honey, or stevia.  This is optional.)
  • 1 Tbs of apple cider vinegar
  • Salt
  • Lots of pepper

Implement it:

Throw it in a bowl and mix it all up!

You can make this basic recipe your own, several different ways.  Try using wine vinegar.  Try adding some chopped herbs such as scallions, cilantro, parsley, or basil.  Try what one of our CSA members did.  They made a basic slaw and added the mint and scallions from their CSA bag.  This would be especially yummy if you use lemon or lime in place of the vinegar.  Thanks for the great idea Jeff and Leslie!

Although Dukes mayo is a Carolina staple, it actually contains soybean oil and it really isn’t that hard to make your own with an emersion blender using your favorite oil.  Check out this video for simple instructions.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j3xx8Bpau0E
