Really Refreshing Cole Slaw

This is so juicy and good, you can use it to quench your thirst, almost.

Ingredients:
1 head green cabbage
1 medium sized yellow onion
2 large carrots
1/4 cup sugar or sucralose (Splenda) sweetener
3/4 cup Salad Dressing (Miracle Whip)
3/4 cup ice water.

Remove the outer leaves and wash the cabbage head. Cut into quarters. Grate the cabbage on the coarse section of a box grater, or grate with your grating blade in you food processor. Peel and fine-dice the onion. Peel, wash, and grate the carrot. Combine the cabbage, carrot, and onion together. Fold in the salad dressing and sugar. Add the ice water and mix until all is blended. Refrigerate for 1 hour in a covered bowl and serve cold.

This tastes similar to the cole slaw served by KFC, but is juicier and yummy.

I love KFC's slaw. We have one here with a drive-thru, and we often just buy a pint there.

Do you use much of the Splenda Sweetener? I see they have a Splenda cookbook at Sam's. I think it cost about $18.00. I have been thinking of using a sugar subtitute and not sure what to buy.

I have read that Splenda is 6x sweeter than sugar. I would think it would take less Splenda...Might look at a cookbook and compare.

other slaw ideas

I always add enough vinegar to dissolve the sugar, mayo some times sour cream.

A deli in Chincoteague, Va used to add crushed pineapple.

A local Mexican Restaurant adds chopped tomatoes and chopped avocados and a little milk.

I think soaking the shredded cabbage in ice water then draining it improves the texture.
