  • 1 whole egg yolk
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
  • 1 cup canola oil
  • 3/4 cup mayo either the homemade recipe above or jarred
  • 1/4 cup Dijon mustard
  • 2 tablespoons sour cream
  • 2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon celery seeds
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1 head cabbage diced very small
  • 1 whole carrot shredded
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped onion from about half an onion
  • 1 teaspoon dried parsley
  1. This cole slaw is best made two days ahead of time or more to really come together. If you decide to make your own mayo, wrap a mixing bowl with a cold, wet towel. Then whisk the egg yolk, Dijon and vinegar together thoroughly in the bowl. Keep whisking while you slowly pour in the oil until you have a thick, luscious mayo. 

  2. It's time to start on the cole slaw next. Whisk 3/4 cup of the homemade mayo or jarred mayo thoroughly in a new bowl with the Dijon, sour cream, apple cider vinegar, celery seeds, salt, black pepper and cayenne to make the dressing. Add the diced cabbage, shredded carrot, chopped onion to a large, sealable container and pour the dressing in with it. Stir it all together thoroughly. Seal the container and let it sit for the two days in the fridge. Serve as a fantastic side!
