Tiki Living - The Best Creamy Cole Slaw

The Best Creamy Cole Slaw

8 C finely sliced slivered cabbage( do not use a shredder)

¼ c carrot

1/3c sugar

1/2t salt

1/8t pepper

1 C mayonnaise

2 T white vinegar

2 T lemon juice

Cut cabbage in half using a very sharp butcher knife, then in half again. Lay flat on cutting board, start slicing very thin so the cabbage resembles long strands of noodles . This is the best consistency for this slaw. You can use a food processor and shred if you like, it will just have a different texture.

Add the remaining ingredients , and chill for at least 1 hour to overnight.

Serve with grilled foods , and baked beans for a great summer meal.

You will never buy store bought again!
