Why do they call a red cabbage red, when it is really purple? Here is my cole slaw recipe using a red cabbage.

serves 6-8
prep time 30 Min
method No-Cook or Other


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

How To Make

  • 1
    Wash and cut cabbage in half. Remove the core of each half by slicing out a v shaped around the core.
  • 2
    On a cutting board, lay down the cabbage half, cut side down. Slice the cabbage all the way across and repeat with the 2nd half.
  • 3
    Remove the top of the carrots and slice off the skin using a vegetable peeler.
  • 4
    In 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.
  • 5
    In 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.

    Note: If you like the taste of sour cream, you can add a few tablespoons to your mixture.
