Mom’s Carolina Coleslaw

My mom made the best coleslaw while we were visiting her recently. I don’t have a picture to share because we ate all of it before I thought about taking one. Even G., who is steadfast in his dislike of cabbage, liked this receipe.

And, it’s very easy to make; just be sure to allow enough time for it to sit so the flavors blend.

1 bag pre-cut coleslaw (or a head of cabbage, chopped)
1/2 cup toasted pumpkin seeds (pepitas) or sunflower seeds
1/4 cup chopped green onions
1/4 cup diced bell pepper
1/2 cup diced celery
1 cup diced beets (optional)
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1 tablespoon honey
1 tablespoon sweet relish
salt and pepper to taste

Mix everything together, and let it sit for at least 24 hours so the flavors blend.
