Cooking with the Journal-Sour Cream Cole Slaw

Today's recipe is for an easy coleslaw made with ingredients one usually has in the fridge and pantry. Cook's Country has a new trick to keep cabbage from weeping in coleslaws and salads.  Place the cabbage with 1 t. salt in a microwave safe bowl.  Cover and microwave on high just until cabbage begins to wilt, 1 1/2 to 2 minutes, stirring halfway through.  Transfer to a colander over a bowl and let stand 15 minutes, stirring occasionally.  Press cabbage to release moisture.  Rinse cabbage to remove excess salt and dry well in a clean dish towel.  Proceed with recipe.  I sometimes add chopped onion, shredded carrot, and chopped red pepper to this, but it is fine without the additions.
