This recipe is an adaptation of several I’ve seen with my own twists.

– Patty


  • 1 head cabbage, chopped (can use combination of purple/green in desired ratio)
  • 2 cups shredded, peeled carrots
  • ¼ cup vinegar (white or apple cider)
  • ½ tsp dry mustard
  • 1 tsp dry or fresh dill
  • ½ tsp celery seed
  • ½ tsp garlic powder
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • ½ cup mayo (see Paleo mayo recipe)


  1. Mix cabbage and carrots in a large bowl until evenly blended.
  2. Combine remaining ingredients in a separate bowl until uniform, then add to cabbage/carrot mix and stir until coated.


  • I like to take some cabbage/carrot mix and dip it in my dressing mix and tweak the taste a bit before finalizing.  Sometimes I’m in the mood for a sweeter taste and I’ll add a few pinches of stevia powder.
  • Sometimes I go heavier on the dill, especially when my garden is giving me piles and piles of it.
  • Some people like to salt and wilt their cabbage for an hour or so and then rinse and drain before preparing.  I just go for it!
