1 head purple cabbage, tough bottom ribs discarded, leaves shredded

3 carrots, peeled and grated

1 red onion, peeled and very thinly sliced

1 cup malt vinegar

Kosher salt

1 1/2 to 2 cups mayonnaise

2 tablespoons Dijon mustard


Combine the cabbage, carrots and onions in a large serving bowl. Douse the vegetables with the malt vinegar, season with salt and let sit for at least 1 hour. This will soften the cabbage and make it seem almost cooked but still with a great texture.

Stir in the mayonnaise and the mustard. Taste for seasoning. The final outcome should be a creamy and tart slaw. Serve cold or at room temperature. Refrigerate leftovers.

YAY! Coleslaw!
