  • 1
    head cabbage
  • 2 pkg
    imitation crabmeat
  • 2 c
  • 1 bunch
    green onion
  • 1/2
    chopped round sweet onion
  • 2 pinch
  • 1/4 tsp
    black pepper
  • 1 tsp
    ground stone mustard
  • 2 tsp
    apple cider vinegar

How to Make Crab Cole Slaw


  1. Thinly slice entire head of cabbage and place in a large mixing bowl. I usually omit the core and save it to use as filler for stews and soup.
  2. Cut the green onions in the same manner and add them to the bowl. This may be omitted, I mainly use it for coloring.
  3. Finely chop your onion and add to mixing bowl.
  4. Open your packages of imitation crab meat and you may either chop or peel and add to mixing bowl. Either way works fine, it just depends on how you like to eat your crab whether in chunks or slivers. Add salt, pepper, mustard and vinegar then thoroughly mix all ingredients.
  5. Add mayonnaise. Amount may be adjusted to your taste. This recipe is much better when prepared ahead of time so that all ingredients have time to marinate.
