  • salt and pepper to taste and your doctor’s recommendation
  • ½ tsp. garlic powder
  • ¾ tsp. onion powder

Preparation

  1. Combine the shredded cabbage and cabbage.
  2. Mix the remaining ingredients EXCEPT the pickle relish until smooth. Add the relish and stir to combine.
  3. Add 5 tablespoons of the dressing to the slaw. Stir to combine. Add more dressing if you want a wetter slaw.
  4. Tightly cover the remaining dressing and use as a spread for sandwiches.
