I had a request for a good cabbage slaw besides one made with just mayo and seasoning.

I immediately thought of Slaw Superb, which is in “From The Sugar Bowl, A Collection of Cajun Recipes From LA Sugar Families & Their Friends,” published by The American Sugar Cane League.

This slaw combines cabbage with celery, red apple, raisins and nuts.

The mayonnaise dressing, thinned with milk and vinegar, complements the slaw.

Serve Slaw Superb with everything from grilled chicken to a pimento cheese sandwich.
