1 medium
head red cabbage
carrot, shredded
1/2 c
1/2 c
mayonnaise (hellmans)
2+ Tbsp
apple cider vinegar
1 dash(es)
1 Tbsp


1Wash and cut cabbage in half. Remove the core of each half by slicing out a v shaped around the core.
2On a cutting board, lay down the cabbage half, cut side down. Slice the cabbage all the way across and repeat with the 2nd half.
3Remove the top of the carrots and slice off the skin using a vegetable peeler.
4In a food processor, put the chunks of cabbage in and shred them down. Repeat the same for the carrot. If you do not own a food processor, just slice the cabbage very thin and then slice again in the other direction in small pieces.
5In a glass bowl, combine your shredded cabbage, carrots and raisins. Add the mayonaise, apple cider vinegar and milk and stir. Add your sugar or sweetner. Mix until well blended. Refrigerate.
6Note: If you like the taste of sour cream, you can add a few tablespoons to your mixture.
