Papa's Coleslaw

I know this sounds weird, but the cabbage at the market has been beautiful lately. I'm not usually a huge cabbage person, but last week they were just so pretty - light green with perfectly formed tight leaves. I couldn't resist.

So here's the first recipe I made. This coleslaw recipe came from Jonathan's dad. It's just the right amount of sweet and tangy, creamy and light.

Cabbage coleslaw

2 Tbsp mayonnaise
2 Tbsp milk
2 Tbsp white vinegar
1 Tbsp sugar
1/2 tsp mustard
1/4 tsp salt
freshly ground pepper

Mix all ingredients well. Pour over one bag of coleslaw mix, or do what I do and shred 1/2 head cabbage and 2 carrots. Let sit at least 2 hours before serving.
