- 1 cup Hellmann’s Real Mayonaise (i’ve never gotten brave enough to try another brand)
- 3 T. lemon juice (bottled works just fine, but fresh does take it a notch
- 2 T. sugar (can use honey)
- 1 t. salt
- 2 t. horseradish (
theone of the secret ingredients)
- 3/4 t celery seed
- 6 cups shredded cabbage
- 1 cup shredded carrots
- 1/2 cup chopped find green pepper
whisk 1st 6 ingredients together. combine vegetables and add sauce mix. Stir well.
that’s it. so easy and so good.
now….i do take a short cut in that i purchase ready made shredded cabbage mix. it does have carrots in it, although not 1 cup. so, i just decide in the moment if i can make that happen or not. the bell pepper is a non-negotiable. it is the other secret ingredient. i usually just put it through the food processor.
