Warm Cabbage Slaw with Country Ham

Steve Hunter

Yield: Yields 4 cups.

Servings: four to six.

If you can get your hands on some real country ham, such as a Smithfield, you’ll love it in this slaw. Prosciutto sliced a little thicker than usual makes a great substitute.


  • 1 Tbs. olive oil
  • 4-1/2 tsp. apple-cider vinegar
  • 1-1/2 tsp. prepared whole-grain mustard
  • 1 tsp. granulated sugar
  • 1/2 tsp. ground mustard seed
  • 1/2 small yellow onion, thinly sliced
  • 1/2 head Savoy cabbage, shredded (about 4-1/2 cups)
  • 1-1/2 oz. Smithfield ham or prosciutto, julienned
  • 1-1/2 tsp. chopped fresh mint
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper to taste

    This is a good recipe, thank you! I recommend using jamon iberico rather than standard ham to make it even better. I get my Spanish ham from http://buyjamon.com

    This is a very light slaw with not much flavor. It was an excellent accompaniment to slow roasted Memphis style barbecue ribs, but I don't think I'd make it otherwise.
