| This salad is much better if made the day before, the dressing applied and then allowed to mellow in the refrigerator overnight. The cabbage wilts just a little for a better mouth texture. The sharp taste and rawness of the freshly cut cabbage mellows overnight. The cabbage is still crispy and has a smooth texture when served and is mildly seasoned for an enjoyable salad.
A medium head of cabbage makes about 1 ½ pounds of shredded cabbage. Add a shredded carrot for a bit of color contrast. However, is very hard to beat the prepared cole slaw mix you can find in your grocer’s produce section.
