Recipe Information


  • 1 14 oz (392 grm). bag of shredded mixed cabbage and carrots (slaw mixture) or 8 cups (1900 ml) of your own shredded mixture of white and purple cabbage and carrots (about 1/2 to 1 medium carrot)
  • 1/2 medium sweet white onion
  • 1/2 medium sweet bell pepper (green, red, yellow or a mixture of all 3 of them)
  • 1 rib celery
  • 1/2 cup (125 ml) white sugar or Splenda
  • 1/4 cup (60 ml) half and half cream
  • 1/4 cup (60 ml) Heinz white vinegar
  • 1/2 cup (125 ml) salad dressing (like Miracle Whip) or mayonnaise
  • 1/4 tsp (1 ml). seasoned salt (like Lawry's)
  • Put the shredded cabbage and carrot mixture in a large bowl and set aside.
  • Take the onion, bell pepper, and celery and chop or shred them very fine (I do one at a time and I use a small electric chopper)
  • Add these to the cabbage mixture.

  • Stir well and add this to the cabbage mixture and mix well.

We were on a trip in September, 2012 up to the upper part of Michigan, to do one of my bucket list things, headed to Mackinaw Island to spend the night in the "Grand Hotel", (and if anybody knows, most of us can only afford 1 night) We stopped on the way in a little Bavarian theme town, called Frankenmuth, Michigan. While there we ate at a place called "Zehnder's" which is known for its fried chicken. With the chicken dinner you get your choice of side dishes and served as an appetizer was a dish they called "Cabbage Salad" It was the best I had ever eaten. I asked the waitress how it was made. She came back out with a hand written paper, with things like 28 cups of sugar, 14 cups of cream, so as you see I was over whelmed. So after asking questions about what kind of cream, etc, I pretty well got it down. I knew I would have to play with it to get it down to normal family size portion. I had to guess on how much cabbage, onion, green peppers, carrots, and celery, because they didn't tell me how much they used. I came home and played with it and this is as close and I could get. I thought you could substitute Splenda for the sugar, this would help on the calorie count.
