  • To make the best red cabbage coleslaw, start with a good quality red cabbage. Look for a cabbage that is deep red in color and has crisp, green leaves. Avoid cabbages that are wilted or have brown or yellow leaves.
  • Cut the cabbage into thin strips, using a sharp knife or a mandoline. If you are using a knife, make sure to cut the cabbage against the grain to get thin, even strips.
  • For the dressing, mix together mayonnaise, vinegar, sugar, and salt to taste. You can also add in some mustard for extra flavor. Adjust the dressing to your liking – add more vinegar if you want it tangier, or more sugar if you prefer it sweeter.
  • Toss the cabbage with the dressing, making sure all the strips are evenly coated. Let the coleslaw sit for at least 30 minutes before serving, to allow the flavors to meld. Serve chilled or at room temperature.
