Eastern Carolina Coleslaw Recipe
Yield 8 x 1 cup (150g) servings
This is a typical salad made to accompany barbeque in the eastern Carolinas area of America. More than that, it's a good old-fashioned, sweet and sour creamy coleslaw that will have you smacking your lips in satisfaction. If you use low-fat mayonnaise to make it, it's only 3 Weight Watchers PointsPlus® per 1 cup (150g) serving.
Chop the green onions thinly including the stalks; put into a very large bowl.
Grate the cabbage finely; add to the bowl and toss with the green onion.
Combine remaining ingredients, pour over cabbage, toss, and store covered in refrigerator. Let chill for at least 1 hour before serving.
This recipe will feed a small crowd; double or triple if you wish. 2 1/2 pounds (1.1 kg) of cabbage after coring, removing outer leaves and shredding is about 10 cups shredded (900g.) You can also use bagged, shredded cabbage.

We used a low-fat mayonnaise that was 18 Weight Watchers PointsPlus® per cup (30 calories per tablespoon.) With that, the total points in the recipe were 26 PointsPlus or just 3 points per 1 cup (150 g) serving. (We also used a salt substitute instead of the salt.)
If you use regular mayonnaise, the total points in the recipe are 54; that’s 7 points per 1 cup (150 g) serving.
Tip! Consider using Kraft Fat-Free Miracle Whip and liquid stevia.
