How to Make Southern Style Cole Slaw


  1. Put cabbage in large bowl (the type with a lid or cover is best, I use a large tupperware type bowl)...
  2. Add vinegar and sugar to cabbage and toss to coat... Cover and let stand for about 30 minutes....
  3. Toss cabbage mixture again... cover it and let it stand for about 30 minutes more...
  4. Drain the the liquid from cabbage... cover and chill... (You can do this up to 6 to 8 hours in advance of when you want to serve it)
  5. Put drained cabbage into another large serving type dish or bowl...
  6. Add carrots, green onions, and mayonnaise; mix well... Season with salt and pepper, if desired...
  7. You can chill the slaw until time to eat or serve it right away...
