1/2 head of a medium cabbage, grated/shredded to about 4 cups
1 cup carrots, grated
1 red-skinned apple, diced into small cubes
NOTE: cut apple just before mixing to prevent oxidation which will turn the apple brown.
1/4 cup raisins
2 Tablespoons vinegar
2 teaspoons sugar
1/2 cup mayonaise
1 heaping teaspoon mustard
1/4 teaspoon salt
pepper to taste
Place cabbage in large glass, ceramic or plastic bowl and sprinkle with vinegar, mix well and let macerate for 5 minutes. Pour off any juice that accumulates.
