  • 1 large cabbage cut into thirds & core removed
  • 2 large peeled carrots
  • 1/2 medium sweet onion
  • 1/3 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/4 cup spicy brown mustard
  • 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • 2 teaspoons apple cider vinegar
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt


  1. Cut two of the cabbage thirds, onion and carrots into large chunks and place in 12-cup food processor. (Note: If you do not have a food processor you can shred the cabbage & carrots by hand. It will take longer but taste just as good!)
  2. Pulse in food processor until carrots & cabbage are both chopped into small pieces.
  3. Chop remaining cabbage into larger pieces. Blend all cabbage together in a large bowl.
  4. Whisk together mayonnaise, mustards, vinegar, sugar, peppers, & salt in small bowl until smooth. Add more or less cayenne to taste.
  5. Pour dressing over cabbage mixture.
  6. Mix well until all cabbage is well coated. Refrigerate at least one hour to let flavors blend.
