There is nothing sexy about cabbage. Nothing. It’s the frumpy old warty person of vegetables. However, just like an old warty fairy-tale witch, its magical transformative powers are amazing and devilish. From making sauerkraut to sausage and cabbage soups, rolled and stuffed dishes, and here, a salad of coleslaw, it is deceptive.
While you’re making sauerkraut, stop and make coleslaw so you can enjoy some cabbage immediately while the months pass by as the kraut ferments.To the reserved shredded cabbage, add some carrots and scallions.Peel and shred the carrots and finely slice the scallions.Mix it all together.Add your secret coleslaw dressing. I used a mixture of whey, mayonnaise, sour cream, jalapeño and honey mustard, apple cider vinegar, and a little salt and sugar.This slaw goes great on black.
