Festive Cheese Dip 'Slaw'

Festive Cheese Dip 'Slaw'


"Festive appetizer served in hollowed out whole red cabbage -- accompanied by corn chips! Beautiful, easy, and oh so tasty! Especially pretty for Thanksgiving and Christmas appetizer buffets. Best if made ahead at least 24 hours to let flavors blend (can refrigerate in covered container for up to one week). Even with peppers, this dip is not too spicy -- children love this dip. A winner!"

  1. In a bowl, lightly mix the Swiss cheese, green onions, banana peppers, jalapeno peppers, and mayonnaise. Cover and refrigerate 24 hours to blend flavors. Mix in more mayonnaise before serving, if desired.
  2. To serve, cut core out of cabbage and discard. Cut a thick slice from the bottom of the cabbage; use a fork to pull the inner leaves out of the cabbage to leave a hollowed out bowl. Pull several of the outer leaves slightly open and fold them back to make the bowl more attractive; serve the chilled dip in the hollowed cabbage.

Made it as an appetizer for Thanksgiving and everyone loved it! However, I did add a little more mayo than what the recipe says and the flavor is much better when you make it the day before and ...

This looks awesome, but are the jalapeno and banana peppers fresh or canned/pickled?

I LOVE this recipe! I often don't serve it in the cabbage. My husband is doing the low carb thing, so eats it with celery. Not as good as Frito Scoops or a nice cracker, but he enjoys it. I ...

Five stars from the LTH family! I made this for our niece's 8th birthday party and it was a HUGE hit, with most everyone. Those that have sensitivities to spicy foods were not as big of fans ...

I spotted this on the Buzz the other day and decided to make it to snack on during the football game today. Go Bucks! I just made the cheese mixture and didn’t serve it in the head of cabbage....

This is incredible!! Not spicy at all and delicious with fritos scoops! I will make this recipe again and again! Made it exactly as stated.

Followed the recipe as written minus the cabbage head. I did let it sit/settle as advised. The majority liked it and some raved about how great it was, I and a few others didn't care for it, I'...

I changed this quite a bit. I don't like swiss cheese so I used mozzarella. My boyfriend doesn't like onions so I left it out. I also did not serve it in the cabbage. I did let it sit overnight...
