My little brussel sprout has adored cabbage since she was wee small. Sauerkraut especially, but also homemade coleslaw. I remember going to a potluck one time and she asked what the "green stuff" was on her plate. "Coleslaw", I told her--to which she replied, "but we NEVER eat green coleslaw!"
Here is a little home style coleslaw--not green--thank goodness. Bil and Madeleine would eat this every day if I made it!
thinly slice 1/2 head of green cabbage, or shred--it's up to you
shred 1 carrot
1/3 cup mayonnaise
2 tbsp vinegar
Mix dressing ingredients, and adjust to suit your taste (sometimes it needs a bit more sugar, sometimes it needs a bit more vinegar. When you have it just right add cabbage and carrot and combine well. Top with paprika if you like.
TIP: My mom adds a little sliced olive to her coleslaw, my mother-in-law adds a little onion--you can jazz it up however you like!
