Cabbage-veggie slaw


Cole slaw, basically, but with a lot of other veggies added. 

1 small head of cabbage
4 carrots, peeled and trimmed
8 radishes, trimmed
1/2 celeriac bulb, peeled
4 Kirby (pickling) cucumbers, partly peeled
3 scallions, chopped

2 Tbp salt

Shred the cabbage in your food processor, using the shredder blade (rather than the slicing blade).  Continue with the other veggies.

Shredded cabbage.

Combine all the shredded veggies in a large bowl, and sprinkle liberally with salt (about 2 Tbp).  Transfer to a colander and let the veggies drain some of their liquid for a couple hours.

 
Still life with veggies. That knobby thing is half a celeriac bulb.

  
Veggie confetti.

  
After draining, about a cup of liquid.

Return the mix to a large bowl.

For the dressing:

1 c mayonnaise
1 c Greek yogurt (or sour cream)
1/4 c coarse-grain mustard
2 Tbp sugar
2 Tbp vinegar
1/4 buttermilk
2 tsp black pepper

Add the black pepper, sugar, and vinegar directly to the slaw.  Combine the other ingredients and dress the veggie mix. 

Where's the pulled pork sammich??
