My Mom’s Hot Dog Slaw

Perhaps the best part of a hot dog is what you top it with. This slaw goes perfect on a hot dog with some chili and also goes great with fried seafood.

Ingredients

  • 6 tablespoons good quality mayonnaise like Duke’s or JFG
  • 2 tablespoons distilled vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper or to taste
  • 4 cups finely shredded cabbage, about 1 small head
  • Kosher salt to taste

Preparation

Stir together the mayonnaise, vinegar, sugar, and black pepper in a medium mixing bowl. Add the cabbage and toss to coat. You will think that you might not have enough dressing. Be patient — you do. Place the slaw in the refrigerator for a couple of hours. Remove, toss again, and salt to taste. Transfer to a serving bowl, head to the table.

Serves 4-6, but easily doubles
