  • 6 ounces half & half
  • 1 1/2 cups salad dressing Hellman's or Kraft mayonnaise
  • 7 ounces white vinegar
  • 1 1/2 cups sugar
  • 1/2 tablespoon Zehnder's Chicken seasoning
  • 1 head cabbage finely shredded
  • 1/4 cup carrot shredded per pound of cabbage
  • 1/4 cup onion finely chopped per pound of cabbage
  • 1/4 cup red cabbage shredded per pound of cabbage
  • 1/4 cup green pepper finely chopped per pound of cabbage


  • Mix all the ingredients, except cabbage, carrots, onion and green pepper, until all solids are dissolved. Store in refrigerator. Chill before using.
  • Shred the cabbage. Add the carrots, onions, red cabbage and green peppers. Toss in the dressing until it coats the cabbage but doesn't make it soggy. If you desire a thicker dressing, substitute sour cream for the half & half.
