How to Make Purple Cabbage Raisin Cole Slaw


  • 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.
