Simple Slaw for BBQ Sandwiches
1 small head cabbage
1/4 cup cider vinegar
1/4 cup mayonnaise
1 tablespoon sugar
1 teaspoon black pepper
1 teaspoon salt
Chop cabbage coarsely with a sharp knife. Wash thoroughly with cold water and place in a salad spinner to remove excess moisture.
Combine cider vinegar, mayonnaise, sugar, black pepper, and 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.
Add cabbage to the mixture and gently combine. Place into the refrigerator for at least 1 hour before using.
