Cole Slaw



I realize that there must be a million ways to make cole slaw. My favorite is this - very simple, and very clean in flavors. And not completely drowning in creamy dressing - that is good, but.. not so good for you. (If you want a real decadent cole slaw in Stockholm, head over to Texas Longhorn - they have a great one.)

Anyway. Here's what I usually do: Mix 1 tbsp of apple cider vinegar with 1/2 tbsp sugar, a little salt and pepper. Beat in 2-3 tbsp mayonnaise until smooth. Stir in 1/2 small head of cabbage (shredded), 1-2 shredded carrots and preferrably 1/2 red onion, thinly sliced. And sometimes I add half a green apple, too.
