Easy, quick, simple, delicious, no-mayonnaise slaw.
  • 1# pack of slaw mix with some red cabbage and carrot shreds
  • 3/4 cup heavy whipping cream in a 2-cup measure
  • scant 1/4 cup cider vinegar
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tsp coarse grind (Kosher) salt
  • freshly ground black pepper, to taste

  • Pour slaw mix into bowl.
  • Stir sugar, salt & pepper into heavy cream in the 2-cup measure.
  • Lightly stir vinegar into measuring cup holding heavy cream mixture.
  • Let sit for about 30 seconds until the cream thickens.
  • Pour the cream mixture over the slaw mix. Toss/stir gently.
  • Serve 4, generously.
Mix dressing and pour over slaw mix just before serving.

The only draw-back to this recipe is that, if left-0ver and held-overnight, if does tend to separate slightly. Re-stir/toss if serving the next day.

This absolutely, to-die-for slaw comes from my second ex-mother-in-law.

Great for picnics--no mayonnaise.

Summer is coming!
