T.C's Coleslaw

My grandmother was a phenomenal cook. I still dream of her homemade apple cakes with caramel butterscotch icing, fresh strawberry cakes, Santa Claus whisker cookies, old fashioned green beans, spaghetti sauce with cloves (who knew?) - the list goes on and on. She was one of those women who was a chef before her time and should have opened a restaurant with all of her "good eats" but never had the chance to. This homemade coleslaw recipe is made with just a few simple ingredients and yet it is so much better than those soupy coleslaw containers that you find at most grocery stores. It can be served with mac & cheese or atop a BBQ sandwich - either way it has just the right amount of vinegar and just enough mayonnaise that you can actually taste the cabbage and carrots.

You Will Need:
  • 1 medium carrot
  • 1/2 head of cabbage
  • 2 Tbsp light mayonaise (my gramma definitely did not use light mayo but I did)
  • 2 Tbsp sugar
  • 1 Tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • Salt & pepper to taste

Here We Go:
  • Grate carrot over medium sized bowl using a microplane (pictured here) or box grater

  • Grate cabbage over bowl and mix ingredients together

  • Add mayonaise, sugar, apple cider vinegar and salt & pepper
  • Stir all ingredients together

Serves 2-4 as a side
Happy Feasting!
