Slaw with Tomato, Red Onion and Jalepeno


This is a guest post from Micha at Cookin’ Mimi.  Welcome, Micha!

In my family this is known as Mama’s slaw. I saw a similar coleslaw
recipe on a Food Network show and decided to tweak it to our
tastes.  The mix of the crunchy cabbage, creamy dressing, and
slightly spicy jalapeno has been a favorite for about seven years. 

  • 1 small head of cabbage, shredded. I got about 8 cups of
    shredded cabbage from this head if measuring is your thing
  • 1 tomato, diced
  • 1/2 red onion, sliced
  • 1 or 2 fresh jalapenos, seeded and sliced
  • 3-/4 to 1 cup of mayonnaise plus more if need
  • salt and pepper to taste

In a large bowl combine cabbage, tomato, onion , and jalapeno. Toss
to combine then add mayonnaise, salt, and pepper. Mix well, cover and
chill for several hours in the refrigerator. Stir before serving.

Serves 8
