Light and Tangy Cole Slaw

I found this cole slaw recipe on Epicurious that looked and sounded fantastic.  I adapted it a bit to work with what ingredients I had on hand and it turned out really delicious.  I loved the sweet and tangy sauce on the crunchy cabbage and carrots.  It was wonderful plain and when served on sandwiches.  It’s quick, simple and so tasty!  This will be my new “go to” slaw recipe.

Toss the cabbage, carrots, purple cabbage, parsley, and green onions together in a bowl.

In a smaller bowl, combine the vinegar, lemon juice, mayonnaise, sour cream, Dijon, sugar, honey, celery salt, sea salt, and freshly cracked pepper, to taste.  Whisk until well combined.  Pour the dressing over the salad and toss until evenly coated.
