This coleslaw is easy to make and perfect for topping Carolina style pulled pork sandwiches. You can adjust the mayonnaise/vinegar ratio to suit your palate.  This slaw can also be served as a side dish for any grilled meat.

What You'll Need

  • 1 small head cabbage
  • 1/4 cup/60 mL cider vinegar
  • 1/4 cup/60 mL mayonnaise
  • 1 tablespoon/15 mL sugar
  • 1/2 tablespoon/7.5 mL black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon/5 mL salt

How to Make It

  1. Chop cabbage coarsely with a sharp knife. Wash thoroughly with cold water and place in a salad spinner to remove excess moisture.
  2. Combine cider vinegar, mayonnaise, sugar, black pepper, salt in a large bowl plastic or glass bowl. Metal is reactive with acid, so do not use a metal bowl for this recipe as it will corrupt the flavor of the slaw.  
  3. Add cabbage to the mixture and gently combine. Place into refrigerator for at least 1 hour before using.
  1. Perfect served on top of Pulled Pork. Store in an airtight container for up to three days after initial preparation.
