Okay, today I made this:

1/2 head purple cabbage
1 head Napa cabbage
1 small head green cabbage
2 carrots
2 apples
1 cucumber
1/2 knob ginger
3 shallots
dried cherries
roasted walnuts
cider vinegar
EVOO
light sesame seed oil
soy sauce
key lime juice
No mayo--this is an oil and vinegar slaw
Yes, S&P to taste
Everything is to taste--depends on how much cabbage you have. I didn't weigh the cabbage, or the apple, cucumber, carrot, shallot. I have to stop eating it...

Where does the "Murphy" come from? The inspiration lets me play with this. Yum.

Both of these recipes look scrumptious. I'm also a cole slaw/cabbage lover. I love the sweet/tart flavor of the added fruit. On the first recipe it calls for a tsp of celery seed. That seems like a lot. Perhaps it is just me who finds the taste of celery seed objectionable.

I also like my cabbage very finely chopped (ala Chick-Fil-A) style. Is there an easier and less messy way to achieve that texture I prefer? I usually cross-chop the cabbage which scatters cabbage bits all over the kitchen. Must be a better way without buying some sort of fancy-wancy kitchen appliance.

That sounds delicious, princess. I love the idea of the addition of dried cranberries and walnuts.

As with all my recipes, feel free to reduce, increase or omit any ingredient. I just report what I used.

A box grater could give you the right chop or even a food processor. Since I have never been to a Chik-Fil-A I am unaware of how fine their cabbage is. Shrek pulverizes his once I am done making most food, so texture is a personal thing, too.

I hope you try it, it is really good. Since I have such a craving for raw cabbage lately, I've been trying different things.

I have the grating attachment for my FP. I send small quarters of the cabbage through the chute, then change blades to the cutting blade. I pulse it for just a couple of times, as you don't want to make mush. So much quicker and cleaner.

Ahh--that makes sense. I liked the dash of sesame seed oil since I was kinda going Asian. Forgot to mention that I added chopped fresh Thai basil right before serving.

For those who don't like celery seed, I sometimes use poppy seed in my slaw.

I was challenged at the time to create a recipe that would be under Murphy's Law...I got the recipe and a pun out of it...doubly good.
