Easy Cabbage Slaw

Ingredients

  • 1 small head of green or red cabbage about 2 pounds
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt plus more for seasoning
  • 1/4 medium red onion finely chopped
  • 1/4 cup cider vinegar
  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/4 cup sour cream
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 teaspoon granulated sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon caraway or celery seeds
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper plus more for seasoning

Instructions

  1. Slice cabbage in half through the core. Cut a V-shaped notch around the white core on each half; discard the core. Slice each half lengthwise into quarters and thinly slice each quarter crosswise into 1/8-inch-wide strips.
  2. Place cabbage in a large colander set over a large bowl or plate, sprinkle with measured salt, and toss to coat. Let sit until cabbage has released about 1/4 cup of moisture, at least 1 hour.
  3. Meanwhile, place onion and vinegar in a small bowl and stir to combine. Let sit until cabbage is ready.
  4. Place mayonnaise, sour cream, mustard, sugar, caraway or celery seeds, and measured pepper in a large bowl and stir to combine.
  5. When cabbage is ready, squeeze large handfuls to release any excess liquid and place in the large bowl with the dressing. Add reserved onion-vinegar mixture and toss to combine.
