Old Fashioned Southern Style Coleslaw


Make this just before serving.


  • 1 small head cabbage, shredded (enough for 4 to 5 cups)
  • 1/2 cup finely minced or grated onion
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/3 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 1/2 cup whipping cream


  1. Shred cabbage and place in a bowl with a lid.
  2. Add onion and mix.
  3. Combine sugar and vinegar in another bowl.
  4. Using a whisk, beat in whipping cream until smooth and thickened. Add to slaw a little at a time, using just enough to moisten. You don't want the cabbage to "swim." You can always add more later if needed.
  5. Chill for about 30 minutes before serving.

8 to 10 servings
