1 1/2 cups mayonnaise
1/2 cup sherry vinegar, or more to taste

2 medium carrots, grated
6 scallions, diagonally sliced into 1-inch pieces
1/2 pound good-quality blue cheese, crumbled
2 teaspoons celery seed

1. In a bowl, whisk together the mayonnaise, 1/2 cup vinegar, sugar, salt, and pepper.

2. In a very large bowl, combine the cabbage, carrots, and scallions. Add the dressing and toss well to mix it with the vegetables.
