Russian Coleslaw with Corn and Crab Imitation Meat

When my family moved to Moscow (in late 80’s), we were able to try many new products, including – crab sticks and corn on the can. Someone mix these products with the traditional cabbage. Thus, it is a nostalgic spring salad.

In Russia, most of the salads, now, made with mayonnaise, I prefer yogurt/sour cream and mustard or olive and vinegar for the salad with fresh vegetables. Some add boiled eggs and chopped dill to the salad.

Russian Coleslaw with Corn and Crab Imitation Meat

Yield: 2 servings

1/2 head small young cabbage, finely shredded (about 2 cups)
3 oz. imitation crab meat (Surimi) or 2-3 sticks, cut into thin strips (sure, real crab meat can be used too)
1/2 cup sweet canned corn (I use Nibbles from Green Giant)
3 tbsp. sour cream or mayonnaise or any creamy coleslaw dressing
1/2 tsp. Dijon Mustard (omit if you use mayo)
salt and pepper
