1large carrot, grated
1/4head of cabbage, shredded
6cupsof boiling water
Prep vegetables: Mix cabbage, carrot, and raisins in a colander. Pour in boiling water and let it run out of the colander into the sink. This will wash the vegetables, but also wilt them a bit. Let all the water drain and let the vegetables cool to room temperature.
Season: Mix in the mayo, season with salt to taste.
Chill and serve: Chill and keep refrigerated until it's time to serve.
Looking for a lighter, low-cholesterol option? Substitute mayo for my own choice of a vinaigrette consisting of a mix of two tablespoons of white wine vinegar, 1 tablespoon of olive oil and one teaspoon of dijon mustard.
