I created this recipe using ingredients on hand, & thought HONEY would make a sweet addition to the Cole Slaw instead of the usual sugar that I usually use.

I thought blending the Mayonnaise with the Sour Cream would also be a great idea.

I made this to go with Irish Sausage Sweet Peppers & onions, Recipe already posted here, since I didn't have lettuce, I thought Slaw would add a crisp & crunchy addition to our dinner.

I shredded this by hand, but sometimes I buy it pre shredded to save time.

This slaw was fresh, crunchy & tasted amazing. Great idea for a slaw recipe in a pinch.

  1. Cut Small head of cabbage in half and remove core with a sharp knife, then shred finely and add to a large bowl.
  2. Wash peel and grate or shred carrots.
  3. Add to bowl of shredded cabbage.
  4. Then add onion powder & Black Pepper I prefer using the coarse Restaurant Style. Or you can wait & add it to the Mayonnaise & Sour cream mixture, either way is okay.
  5. Next add apple cider vinegar to a small jar with lid, then add honey, and shake well to blend, till mixed together and save to add it to the mayonnaise and sour cream mixture.
  6. Add mayonnaise, sour Cream, and beat together to blend in a medium size bowl.Be sure to add the chopped green onion, and chopped chive, & salt if using, and blend well.
  7. Add mayonnaise mixture to shredded cabbage & carrots, and stir till mixture is evenly blended together. Taste and make adjustments if need be.
  8. Serve and enjoy. Garnish with green onion tops if desired. I discovered that this slaw added a crunchy addition to my Irish Sausage. Sausage and Cole Slaw all in one bite. Try it, you may like it too. The link for the Irish sausage with sweet peppers is Irish Sausage Links with Peppers & Onions
