Wonderful! It's amazing how just one cabbage head will yield such a huge bowl of sliced cabbage, isn't it?
I'm growing red cabbage right now in our garden. Last year I made many wonderful mexican style cole slaw dishes with our red cabbage, here's a picture of one cole slaw I made from our garden cabbage:
Food Onion Ingredient Bean Recipe

It had the usual cole slaw dressing plus vinaigrette, added black beans, corn, lots of fresh cilantro, red peppers, onions (including their scallion tops), and chipotle sauce.
I love that cabbage will stay fresh for a LONG time in the fridge uncut, in a plastic supermarket bag, until I'm ready to use it.

Well I just take a half of a large head of red cabbage and slice it thin, cut the long strands a bit, and add:
can or two of black beans, rinsed & drained
can of two of corn drained (i like the tender white corn)
1 medium chopped onion
about 2 cups chopped fresh cilantro (important flavor)
1 large diced red pepper
& lots of fresh ground black pepper

then I mix up a dressing with the following ingredients (sorry i just do it without actually measuring):
Miracle Whip
some mustard,
some wine vinegar
a little lemon juice
a few tablespoons sugar
and some chipotle hot sauce (adds a smoky flavor)

Add the dressing a little at a time while mixing- you don't want the cole slaw to be sopping in dressing. You can always use any extra dressing on salads or sandwiches.

Chill everything in the fridge til nice and cold. Always stir before serving. Lasts several days in the fridge.
A half head of cabbage produces a really big bowl of slaw, so don't slice up the whole head to begin with.
