Southern Slaw

  • 1 medium-sized head green cabbage about 2 pounds
  • 1 tablespoon kosher salt
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 small red pepper
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 tablespoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 cup red wine vinegar
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley

Remove the tough outer leaves of the cabbage and discard. Cut the cabbage in half top to bottom then remove the core. Cut each half into 3/4 inch slices then rotate the cabbage to cut into a 3/4 inch dice. Repeat with other half.

Place the diced cabbage in a large bowl and toss with 1 tablespoon kosher salt and 1 tablespoon sugar. Let stand for at least 25 minutes then pour off excess water.

Cut open the pepper and remove the stem, pith, and seeds.

In the beaker of a blender place the trimmed pepper, 2 tablespoons of sugar, 1 tablespoon of kosher salt, the red wine vinegar, and the oil. Turn on high and puree. Combine with the drained cabbage and let sit for 2 minutes.

Toss with the 2 tablespoons of chopped parsley then serve.

This recipe makes about 1 quart.
