Queenbee loves coleslaw, always has, always will. While she is open to many different varieties, Southern Style is her favorite. I usually make it for her at least a couple of times a month, and today was no exception. A lot of people think that the two colors of cabbage are no different when it comes to flavor. This is, however, FALSE. Purple cabbage is strong and slightly bitter, while green cabbage is more fresh tasting and has a mild, versatile flavor. In my opinion, purple cabbage is a strange species of garden plant that does not belong in a southern style slaw. Now that we have established which is the correct color of cabbage to eat, let us talk about how it is prepared and consumed.

The Ingredients: 1 medium size green cabbage, 1 cup shredded carrots, 1 cup shredded pickles, 1/2 cup sour cream, 1/4 cup mayonnaise, 2-3 tbsp. spicy brown mustard, 2 tbsp. thousand island dressing.

Slice cabbage into wedges and shred it in the bowl of your food processor. Do the same with a cup of baby carrots, or just buy the pre-shredded ones. Stir the shredded cabbage and carrots together until they are well combined, then add the remaining ingredients. Mix with tongs or a rubber spatula until well combined. Refrigerate for thirty minutes to one hour.

This coleslaw is sooooo good…..
