George's Cole Slaw

Named for Legal Sea Foods founder (and Roger's father) George, this classic side pairs perfectly with fried fish!

Cole slaw has been a staple on the menu since the start of Roger's restaurant days. It's usually served with fried fish, but could accompany any main course.

Serves 4


5 cups shredded green cabbage
3 cups shredded red cabbage
to ½ cup shredded onion (about 1 medium)
1½ cups shredded carrots
¼ cup shredded green pepper
1 to 1¼ cups mayonnaise
¾ cup sour cream or light sour cream, or ½ cup sour cream and cup yogurt


Pour boiling water over the green cabbage and let sit for 5 minutes. Drain and press dry. Toss with the red cabbage, onion, carrots, and pepper. Add the mayonnaise and sour cream. Add salt to taste.
