1/2 cup mayonnaise

1/2 cup sour cream

1 teaspoon dijon mustard

3 tablespoons apple cider vinegar

2 teaspoons caraway seeds

1 tablespoon mustard seeds

Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper

4 cups shredded green cabbage

2 cups shredded red cabbage

1/2 sweet onion, thinly sliced

2 carrots, grated


In a large bowl, whisk the mayonnaise, sour cream, mustard and vinegar. In a dry skillet over medium heat, toast the caraway and mustard seeds until fragrant, 2 to 3 minutes. Add to the dressing, season with salt and pepper and stir well.

Add the green and red cabbage, onion and carrots and mix well, massaging in the dressing to coat the slaw and tenderize the vegetables. Cover and set aside at least 10 to 15 minutes or refrigerate up to 2 days.
