Slightly sweet, slightly tangy, slightly creamy slaw, quick & easy to prepare. This recipe can be easily doubled for potlucks or picnics. If you love celery seeds in your slaw, throw a teaspoon into the mixture - Zsu Dever.

After making this slaw with homemade Tofu Mayonnaise, I wondered why I've never been a coleslaw fan. I am now! - Judith Kingsbury

  1. Quarter the cabbage and cut out the core.
  2. Shred the cabbage using a food processor or a sharp knife.
  3. Transfer the shredded cabbage to a large bowl and toss with the salt.
  4. Mix the cabbage with the carrots, onion, mayonnaise, lemon juice, vinegar, and sugar. Mix well.

Recipe Tips:

This is a simple year-round salad, inexpensive, with commonly found ingredients, kid friendly and highly adaptable. I used part purple cabbage, and added some chopped parsley and toasted sunflower seeds.

One of the best things about this coleslaw is that it keeps in the fridge for a couple of days. I munched on it for breakfast lunch and dinner. And when it was gone I made more. Nirvana!
