This is the way my mother would make slaw from the early garden vegetables. That first cabbage, onions, and carrots in the spring are so tender and sweet.


1 - 2
early tender young cabbage ( about the size of 2 softballs each)
baby carrots (from the garden or store purchased)
2 -3
spring onions (with the green tops)
1/2 c
mayo (i now use mayo with olive oil)
about 1/4 cup either dill or sweet vinegar from pickles (whichever you prefer)
1 Tbsp
sugar (now i use a packet or two of sweetner)
salt, black pepper and cayenne pepper to taste
paprika to sprinkle on top

Directions Step-By-Step

Add onions and carrots to cabbage. In a smaller bowl, mix mayo, pickle vinegar, sugar and seasonings, pour over cabbage mixture and mix well. Place in storeage bowl with lid.
