Cabbage for coleslaw salad recipe


  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise (I prefer miracle whip myself, can also use light!)
  • 1 clove of garlic, minced
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 tbsp white vinegar
  • 2 tbsp white granulated sugar
  • salt and pepper to taste


1. Cut your green cabbage into thin strips and place into a salad spinner like this stainless steel salad spinner by OXO.

2. Wash and dry your cabbage for coleslaw and set aside (the drier the better, can pat dry with paper towels if you don't have a salad spinner). This will allow the coleslaw dressing to soak into the cabbage easier).
