  1. Mix the shredded cabbage, carrots and optional onions together in a large bowl. 

  2. In a separate mixing bowl, stir the mayo, creme fraiche, optional coconut sugar and apple cider vinegar until well blended.

  3. Just before serving toss the dressing with the slaw. Add sea salt and freshly ground pepper to taste.

  4. Alternatively, blend the dressing with the vegetables an hour or so ahead of the meal and chill in the fridge until ready to serve.

Recipe Notes

The exact amount of dressing that appeals to you will depend on the amount of cabbage you have, how much dressing you like, and personal taste on the seasonings. 

Some like it sweeter, others like it a little tart, so adjust to best suit your family's taste buds.
