Coleslaw Recipe
  • Remove the wilted, discolored and thick outer leaves of the cabbage and cut the remaining head into quarters. Remove the hard inner core from each quarter.
  • Thinly shred the cabbage to produce approximately 8 cups. Shred carrots and set shredded cabbage and carrots aside.
  • Combine sour cream, mayonnaise, vinegar, sugar, salt, and pepper in a large bowl and whisk until well blended.
  • Add shredded cabbage and carrots. Toss until cabbage and carrots are evenly coated.
  • Let the coleslaw stand at room temperature, uncovered, until cabbage is wilted, approximately 25 to 30 minutes. Toss 1 or 2 times while it is standing.
  • After it is wilted, place in the refrigerator to chill.
  • The coleslaw can be made the day before and refrigerated until ready to use.(A sprinkle of paprika perks up the appearance of the slaw.)
