Red Cabbage and Kale Slaw


In the interest of keeping the kitchen cool, I’m still on the salad track, and slaw is the ultimate summer salad.  This slaw is colorful and delicious, just like me.

  • 2 cups kale, rough stems cut away and discarded
  • 1 red cabbage, de-stemmed, quartered, then shredded on the largest grate of a box grater (yields about 2-3 cups)
  • 1 small shallot, minced (about 1 tablespoon)
  • 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon champagne vinegar
  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/4 cup olive oil, plus more for drizzling
  • Salt and pepper for seasoning
  • 1/2 cup dried sugar free cranberries, currants, cherries, or raisins (optional)


  • Lay kale leaves on a flat surface, sparsely drizzle with olive oil, then massage the kale leaves for one minute. Chop the kale leaves finely. In a large bowl, mix prepared kale and red cabbage. In smaller bowl, whisk together a dressing of shallot, apple cider vinegar, champagne vinegar, mayonnaise, and olive oil. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Add dressing to kale and cabbage mixture, tossing to coat evenly. Add in dried fruit pieces if desired, toss. Serve immediately or refrigerate until ready to serve.

    What’s your latest mayo recommendation? – I’ve tried the Organic one from TJ, not too great. And so many have gross ingredients.

    • Hey Alison! Yeah, mayo can be tricky as regular, store bought mayo can have all sorts of surprises like corn syrup, chemicals, and even coloring in it. I make mine from scratch using eggs and grapeseed oil, or I buy vegannaise, or I just look for the least offensive mayo I can find at the store. I’m eager for a company to make a better mayo.

    I was going to ask about the mayo too, do you have a recipe for mayo or can I make this using eggs and bacon fat.

    • I have a recipe for it in the cookbook–maybe I should post it early. I love bacon fat–it may wind up being too heavy, but I say give it a try!
