Red Cabbage Slaw

I had half of a head of red cabbage in the refrigerator.  I had sauteed the first half with red peppers and red onion and it was quite tasty but I wanted to do something different with the second half.  I also had some mayonnaise I made up for cheese sandwiches that needed to be used before it spoiled so I decided to throw together a quick slaw.  I grated a carrot and added some chopped red onion.

I had an almost-empty container of buttermilk so I added what was left to the mayonnaise along with a splash of apple cider vinegar for the dressing.  I tossed in some golden raisins for sweetness.

It only took a few minutes and I ended up with a fresh, tasty side dish that I will definitely make again, and often.  I might add toasted walnuts for special occasions.
