Shred or chop cabbage into a fine chop. Shred carrot. Salt and pepper to taste. Add enough Miracle Whip to moisten.
Do not over add Miracle Whip as this will make a runny slaw. Over the years I have cheated and used coleslaw mix from the produce department (the only change I've made). Saves time and is a good blend of white and red cabbage and a hint of carrot.
Salt and pepper is really the only seasoning you need. Cabbage should be the star here.
