  • 2 cups julienne strips of sweet red pepper
  • 2 cups julienne strips of sweet yellow pepper
  • Cooking Directions

    Mix mayonnaise, sugar, salt, pepper, cayenne pepper, and cumin until smooth and all the lumps are gone. Slowly add ½ cup of vinegar and whisk until combined. Taste and adjust salt and vinegar if necessary. Add herbs and mix to combine. The texture of the dressing should be thinner than a traditional mayo dressing.

    Mix cabbages, carrots and peppers together. Add dressing and mix to combine. Taste and adjust seasonings if necessary. Let sit in the refrigerator for a few hours before serving.

    Best made fresh every day.
