    From "See You On Sunday" by Sam Sifton

    Recipe Introduction

    "What follows is a recipe for a basic coleslaw, which means different things to different people. Mine has a mayonnaise-based dressing. For a lighter version, you could reduce the amount of mayonnaise by half and bring in a half cup of buttermilk or sour cream to replace it. Those who enjoy a tarter slaw might increase the amount of cider vinegar. To shred the vegetables, you can use a food processor or have at them with a sharp knife. I love this salad with fried fish and chicken, and on sandwiches of all kinds. What, no celery seeds? You can add a spray of them if you wish."

    List of Ingredients

    ◦ 2 large carrots, trimmed and shredded
    ◦ 1 head green cabbage (about 2 pounds), outer leaves discarded, cored and shredded
    ◦ 1 cup mayonnaise
    ◦ cup cider vinegar
    ◦ 1 tablespoon sugar
    ◦ 2 teaspoons kosher salt, or to taste


    Toss the shredded carrots and cabbage together in a large bowl.

    Combine the mayonnaise, vinegar, sugar, and salt in a small bowl and whisk to combine. Taste and adjust the seasonings.

    Pour most of the dressing over the carrots and cabbage and toss gently to spread the coating throughout the slaw. Add the rest of the dressing and toss again. Refrigerate for an hour or so before serving.
