·        1/2 head of green or red cabbage (about 2 pounds)

·       1 -1/2 teaspoons kosher salt

·       1/4 cup apple cider vinegar

·       1/4 cup Earth Balance mayonnaise(Dairy/Soy-free)

·       1/4 cup almond milk Greek style yogurt

·       1 teaspoon Dijon mustard

·       1 teaspoon Truvia(stevia)

·       1/2 teaspoon celery seeds

·       1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

·       2 medium carrots, peeled and grated

1.     Slice cabbage and discard the core. Only using one half of the cabbage,  cut into thinly slices about  1/8-inch-wide strips.
2.    Place cabbage in a large colander set over a large bowl or plate, sprinkle with kosher salt, and toss to coat. Place a heavy bowl on top of the cabbage, then place a heavy can or container in the bowl to weigh it down. Let sit until cabbage has released about 1/3 cup of moisture, at least 1 hour.


The water left over from the cabbage after 1 hour ….         


3.  Place the apple cider vinegar in a small bowl ….

along with the mayonnaise,

 Set aside  until cabbage is ready.


4.   Place the cabbage in a salad spinner to to release any excess liquid


5.     Place cabbage in a large bowl ,
