Inspired by an episode of Good Eats. The main idea is to wilt the cabbage a bit in order to achieve a day-old texture, without waiting a day.

What’s in it:

  • 1 head cabbage
  • 1 tablespoon salt
  • 1 cup mayonnaise
  • 2 tablespoons creme fraiche
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon hot sauce
  • 1 tablespoon minced onion
  • 1-2 minced garlic cloves
  • 1 grated carrot
  • salt and pepper

How to do it:

Start about 2 hours early or sooner. Shred the cabbage. Toss with salt and squish up a bit, put in a salad spinner or strainer over a bowl. Wait about an hour, then rinse with fresh water. Dry off the cabbage a bit by spinning or squeezing. Mix up the other ingredients, then toss with the shredded cabbage. Chill and serve.
