Red Cabbage Slaw


Remember that cabbage photo I posted earlier this week?

He now looks like this:

This is my new favorite slaw – made with what I happened to have on hand that seemed to work together. 🙂

Red Cabbage Slaw


1 small red cabbage, thinly chopped in strips
1/2 cup sweet corn (I used frozen, which I thawed with warm water)
1/2 cup chopped onion
1/4 cup blue cheese

1/4 cup rice vinegar
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1 tsp ground dry mustard
1-2 tsp agave nectar (I like my slaw tangy, but you can make it as sweet as you like by adding more or less agave)


Whisk your vinegar, oil, mustard, and agave in a large bowl until well combined. add your cabbage, corn and onion and toss to thoroughly coat with dressing. Add blue cheese and stir to combine. Allow to sit in the fridge for at least an hour before serving.

It occured to me, as I was eating this for lunch today, that you could make this playfully patriotic by calling it red, white and blue slaw – just use sweet white corn with your red cabbage and blue cheese. 🙂

Wishing everyone a safe, enjoyable Memorial Day weekend.

  1. Since I started gardening, I have found cabbage to be one of the most beautiful crops. I have never planted it myself but I love watching it grow in the other plots…it’s amazing how each leaf forms on top of the next…quite a site.

    Thanks for the recipe. I am always looking for new and creative ways to use my CSA cabbage 🙂

    1. Great! I’m glad the recipe will be helpful! It is a very pretty plant – and it grows big fast!! Thanks for commenting!

  2. A-ha… the blue cheese as an ingredient has be intrigued! I LOVE blue cheese! Maybe have to try this. I could do this with regular cabbage, right?
