AIMEE'S DAD’S (GARY JACKSON'S) WORLD FAMOUS COLE SLAW 

  • 1 head of green cabbage
  • mayonnaise (about ¾ cup to 1 cup)
  • 3 or 4 carrots or red cabbage
  • salt and pepper to taste

Dad's "world famous cole slaw" is pretty simple to make.  First you need a head of green cabbage, mayonnaise, salt and pepper and you are off to the races.  After washing the cabbage, cut off a portion of it and grate it with either a hand grater or a food processor.  Experiment with the amount of cabbage based on how many people you plan on feeding.  After you grate the cabbage and put it in a bowl, you add mayonnaise until it is as moist as you desire.  Mix it up thoroughly until the mayonnaise is spread out evenly in the cabbage.  Then, just add a dash of salt and pepper and stir a little bit more.  Now, if you want to get "really wild," you might decide to add some grated carrots and / or some red cabbage to add some color to the mix.  **Follow directions as Dad explained; Michael and I make this in our food processor; Dad grates his.  Do whichever way you prefer!
