Diva Tasting: Grandma Slaw…

Grandma Slaw

We all remember some foods from our childhoods more fondly than others, grandmother’s cabbage salad is one.

Most people refer to sliced or shredded raw cabbage coated with mayo- or vinegar-based dressing as coleslaw (or just slaw). It may also contain lemon juice, onions, shredded carrots, slivered almonds, and even fruit. Not this one.

Start with a big chunk of plain green cabbage. Recommend use ¼ of a medium head, which serves two. Remove any tough or discolored leaves from the outside. Cut out the core from the bottom. Use the food processor to give the cabbage a finely-chopped texture.

Place the cabbage in a large bowl and add your favorite mayonnaise. Hellman’s all the way for me,

Add 1 tbsp. of mayonnaise at a time until the cabbage is lightly coated but not drowning.

Add a pinch of kosher salt.

1 tbsp Whole celery seeds (not Salt) Makes a Fresher Taste…mix then Taste

Optional: 1 Can Pineapple Chunks in its own juice. Drain and fold into mixture.

Good with plain saltines or water table crackers.
