Mardi Gras Slaw

Photo: Iain Bagwell; Stylist: Cindy Barr
Hands-on time 8 mins
Total time 8 mins
Yield Serves 8 (serving size: about 1/2 cup)
The traditional colors of Fat Tuesday celebrations are purple, green, and yellow, and this vibrant slaw mimics that combo. Use a mandoline or very sharp knife to cut the cabbage, and you'll avoid the rather strong smell that often comes when you shred it.

Ingredients

  • 1/3 cup canola mayonnaise
  • 2 tablespoons cider vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon mustard seeds
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground red pepper
  • 4 cups very thinly sliced green cabbage
  • 1 cup very thinly sliced red cabbage
  • 1/2 cup shredded carrot (1 medium)
  • 3 thinly sliced green onions
