C's Slaw

Since we woke to a beautifully sunny morning, I dropped C off at the gym and headed to the monthly farmers market downtown. While the produce options are still pretty slim, there were beautiful heads of cabbage to be found. I picked up one green and one purple. And since the weather channel promises me that tomorrow will be just as beautiful, we decided we will have a small bbq including some homemade slaw.


1 head green cabbage, shredded
½ head red cabbage, shredded
4 medium carrots, shredded

For the dressing, mix together...
1.5 cup Hellman’s mayonnaise
4.5 tablespoons sugar
1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
1 tablespoons white vinegar
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1/4 teaspoon onion powder
1/4 teaspoon dry mustard
1/4 teaspoon celery salt
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1 dash black pepper
1.5 tablespoon lemon juice
3/4 cup half-and-half
1/2 teaspoon salt

Pour dressing over shredded cabbage and carrots, toss and refrigerate. For the best taste, make this a day ahead so the flavours have a chance to blend.
