A friend gave me this recipe and I have used it for many pot lucks and family gatherings and it is always a hit. It can be slimmed down by adjusting ingredients for a lighter version.

1½ lb
cabbage, shredded

¼ tsp
1/3 c

1 c
whipping cream or fat free half and half
2/3 c

How to Make Brookville Cole Slaw


  • 1Place the shredded cabbage and carrots in a large covered bowl. You can also use the bagged shredded cabbage but I like to run a knife through it to make it a bit smaller.
  • 2Add salt and pepper and toss. Put in the refrigerator for an hour or more.
  • 3MIx the sugar and vinegar very well. Stir into cabbage mixture and combine well. I have not tried to make this with any artificial sweetners.
  • 4Add the cream and stir really well. If you use the whipping cream, stirring it hard and fast will make it a bit fluffy. Using the fat free half and half will not change the taste but it will significantly reduce the calories and fat.
  • 5Chill well and serve. This keeps several days in the refrigerator.
