Here’s a recipe for Classic Southern Slaw, from Patrick Evans-Hylton’s book, Dishing Up Virginia.
For the dressing
1 cup mayonnaise
1/2 cup sour cream
1/4 cup cider vinegar,
1/3 cup sugar
1/4 tsp celery seed
1/4 teaspoon dry mustard
1/4 teaspoon paprika
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
For the slaw
1 medium head green cabbage, finely chopped
1 large carrot, peeled and finely chopped
Add all dressing ingredients to a glass jar and seal the lid; shake to incorporate the ingredients. Refrigerate for at least 1 hour; shake again before dressing slaw.
In a large bowl add cabbage and carrot. Pour the dressing over the salad, and toss to coat. Refrigerate for at least 1 hour. Toss again before serving; serve with a slotted spoon.
