When life hands you cabbage…

What to do when your domestic partner goes out for salad makings and comes home with a giant head of cabbage instead? Cole slaw! Duh.

I’ve never made slaw before, so to the internet I went. The fridge and cupboards were a bit barer than usual, so I was looking for a recipe that was short on ingredients – or long on ingredients I could ignore. On epicurious I found one that was a bit of both:  a delightful slaw with a dijon-cider dressing. I had both of those! My bastardized recipe:

1 giant head of cabbage, thinly sliced (or as thinly sliced as you can be bothered)
2/3 cup mayonnaise (I’m fairly sure we used light, which was fine)
2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
2 teaspoons sugar

Mix the dressing ingredients, dress the cabbage, add some salt and pepper and eat. Or chill and then eat. Or eat some, then chill the rest. You get the picture.

Actual recipe here.
