  • 4 tsp white vinegar
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar

  • 1/4 tsp kosher salt
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper
  • 1 cup mayonnaise (I recommend Hellman's or Duke's)
  • 20 oz finely shredded green cabbage, chopped to 1/4" pieces (I usually get 2 (10 oz each) bags of preshredded cabbage and chop it)
  • 1/4 cup shredded and chopped carrots chopped to the same size as the cabbage)


  • In a large mixing bowl, add vinegar, sugar, mustard, salt and pepper and whisk together until sugar has dissolved.
  • Add mayo and whisk until combined.
  • Add cabbage and carrots and toss to combine.
  • Cover and refrigerate at least 2 hours (more is better) and serve cold.
