Kimi's Simple Cole Slaw

I love all things cabbage.  Seriously.  It's cheap and amazingly healthy and also pretty easy to prepare as well.  You can get as intensive as you like with culturing to make things like sauerkraut or kimchi or just take it easy and saute it in a pan of butter.  You can steam it or use it as a wrap.
But one of my all time favorites is just to make a slaw.
Cole slaw is a great side dish or  even topping for BBQ or chili dogs.
This is the recipe I've used for the last few decades with a few tweaks to make it THM-worthy (Trim, Healthy Mama) as an S recipe.
Also... like most things in life, there are no absolute directions here.  I am including rough amounts, but they will always vary depending on your own tastes.

Kimi's Simple Cole Slaw- S
1 small, or half a large, head of cabbage
1/2 sweet onion, finely sliced (a regular white or yellow onion is fine)
1 cup mayonnaise
1/4 cup Dijon mustard
2-4 T apple cider (or white) vinegar
1-2 doonks pure stevia
1 Tbsp poppy seeds

Cut the cabbage into very fine strips or shreds, the finer the better.
In a bowl, mix in the onion and sprinkle with salt and pepper.
In a separate bowl or cup, mix together the mayonnaise, mustard, vinegar, stevia and poppy seeds till blended well.
Pour dressing over the cabbage/onion and mix together till coated.
Allow to chill for a few hours before serving.
