M & C Slaw

M & C Slaw

I bet you are wondering why this slaw recipe is called M & C slaw?? My husband and I created this master piece. We decided since his name is Matthew and my name is Charlene we would call it M & C Slaw. Great name right?? I know.

The other day I got a ton of cucumbers from a old teacher from high school.  Her garden has provided plenty for her and her family, so she is sharing now. She gave me two big bags of cucumbers, so I am looking for lots a ways to use them. I thought maybe I could pickle them, but they are too big. The cucumbers taste so yummy in this slaw though. Hope you enjoy it as much as we did.

1 1/2 c of shredded purple cabbage

1 c of shredded green cabbage

1/2 c of shredded carrots

1/2 of yellow onion, finely diced

1 medium size cucumber, sliced

2 Roma tomatoes, quartered

Mix together in a large bowl and set aside while preparing the sauce.


2 cups cider vinegar
1 1/3 cups water
1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons ketchup
2/4 cup firmly packed brown sugar or more to taste – (I use more)
3 teaspoons salt
4 teaspoons hot red pepper flakes
1 teaspoon ground black pepper


Mix together in a medium size bowl. Add about half of the sauce to the slaw. Mix all together, and add more if preferred. Serve chilled.
