Garden Coleslaw with an unusual ingredient

Unusual Ingredient here is Zucchini
Coleslaw is something you either love or hate. If you like Mayo, you might like this. It’s versatile. You can shred the cabbage at home or even buy bags of shredded cabbage in the supermarket. However, I find the bagged cabbage flavorless. When I shred it myself, it is much tastier. I use one of those mandolin slicers to get the cabbage shreded. But you can use a box grader. If you don't keep one onboard, make sure you get that on your list of stuff to take to the boat, if you plan to shred the cabbage onboard.

½ of a head of green cabbage
1 small zucchini shredded
½ cup of graded carrots
¼ cup of chopped green pepper
½ to ¾ cup of Mayo or Miracle Whip
1 to 2 Tablespoons of sugar
1 to 2 Tablespoons of Lemon Juice
1 teaspoon of celery seed
½ teaspoon of salt.

This recipe makes about 7 cups. Depending on how large the head of cabbage is will determine how much mayo you need. I like to use Miracle Whip or at least a 50/50 mix of mayo and Miracle Whip.

Cabbage keeps really good on the boat. It doesn’t require the refrigeration that lettuce does. I have even used shredded up cabbage in the place of lettuce in a salad. It worked out fine. Tomatoes, onion and Kraft Zesty Italian dressing on a shredded cabbage salad is actually pretty good!
