Fat Boys BBQ Recipe

1/2 head green cabbage, thinly sliced
1/2 head red cabbage, thinly sliced
1 small carrot, ends discarded, very thinly sliced
3 medium center ribs of celery heart, ends and leaves discarded, very thinly sliced
1/2 cup fresh buttermilk
2 oz. sour cream
2 oz. Hellman's mayonnaise
2 tablespoons strained pickle juice
1 teaspoon dry mustard
1 teaspoon celery seed, crushed
2 tablespoons chives, chopped
salt, seasoning to taste and for wilting the shredded cabbage

Slice the cabbage thinly (shave). In a large pot add 4 tablespoons of salt to the sliced cabbage. Cover with water and mix in the salt thoroughly. Allow cabbage to soak for 4 hours. Stir the salted cabbage occasionally. Drain cabbage. Rinse thoroughly and dry.

In a separate bowl, combine all of the ingredients except cabbage, celery and carrot. Whisk briskly to combine evenly. Add the cabbage, celery and the carrot.
Toss the cabbage, celery and carrot with the dressing. Mix very thoroughly.
Allow to sit on counter, top covered tightly for 1 hour. Stir to remix all ingredients completely. Recover tightly and refrigerate until served.
