From the Cabbage Patch
Sometime in my mid-twenties I decided to give the whole golumpki a try and found I didn't hate cabbage at all. And from then on it was cabbage heaven for me. These days I wait impatiently for our garden to produce. Golumpki, kapusta, cabbage pierogi are standard cooked cabbage fare. Shredded cabbage instead of lettuce on tacos, and summer slaw are two favorite ways to use raw cabbage.
1 medium cabbage, chopped or coarsely grated
2 carrots, peeled and coursely grated
1/2 cup mayonnaise
2 tablespoons heavy cream
1 tablespoon sugar
2 tablespoons white vinegar
1/2 teaspoon celery seed
black pepper to taste
Combine the shredded cabbage and carrots in a large bowl. Whisk together the mayonnaise, heavy cream, sugar, vinegar, celery seed and pepper in a medium bowl. Add dressing to the cabbage mixture. Mix well to combine. Taste for seasoning; add salt, more pepper, or sugar if desired.
