Cole Slaw
Grate or shred:
1 head green cabbage
2 carrots
and toss them in a non-reactive bowl with:
1 small red onion, minced
2 t kosher salt
 
Meanwhile, stir together:
1 c sour cream
1/2 c white vinegar
2 T sugar
1 T prepared horseradish
1/2 t celery seed
1/2 t paprika
 
Stir the sauce into the cabbage, cover, and refrigerate overnight. Adjust the seasonings to taste. You may want to drain it a little before serving. Sprinkle with paprika to garnish the bowl.
Notes & Variations:
  1. This is a very traditional cole slaw. A million variations are possible, but this is about as close to a perfect slaw as it gets.
  2. It's much better to grate the cabbage than to simply chop it up. Grate the carrots finely.
