Servings 4


  • 2 cups Cabbage thinly sliced
  • 4 Tbsp Mayonnaise
  • 1 Tbsp Sweet Gherkin Pickle Juice
  • 1/4 tsp Salt
  • 1/2 tsp Black Pepper


  1. Slice raw cabbage against the grain very thinly. Place in a medium sized mixing bowl.

  2. In a small mixing bowl, combine mayonnaise, pickle juice, salt, and pepper. Stir until all are incorporated to make a smooth sauce.

  3. Add the sauce to the sliced raw cabbage. Mix well. Store in a covered container in the refrigerator.

Recipe Notes

I use the light mayonnaise and the juice from a jar of “no added sugar” sweet gherkins. Mt. Olive and Essential brands make the “no added sugar” sweet gherkins. I like the blend of spices, rather than using vinegar.
