* The Cook editors at The Daily Meal found that 1 cup of mayonnaise gives the perfect consistency to the dressing, that 2 teaspoons of sugar is just the right amount of sugar, and that ¼ cup of apple cider is the perfect amount to thin out the dressing and add the right amount of tang.
This recipe was adapted from Red's Eats: World's Best Lobster Shack by Debbie Gagnon Cronk and Virginia Wright (Down East 2010).
- 1 head cabbage
- 2 large carrots
- Mayonnaise, to taste*
- Sugar, to taste*
- Apple cider vinegar, to taste*
Shread the cabbage and carrots in a food processor and combine in a large bowl. Mix together the mayonnaise, sugar, and vinegar. Taste, and adjust to your liking by adding more sugar or vinegar. Add dressing to cabbage mixture a little a time, stirring well after each addition. Use only enough dressing to moisten the vegetables.
