  1. Combine the shredded green cabbage, shredded purple cabbage, and grated carrot in a large mixing bowl. Toss them together until well mixed.
  2. Mix the mayonnaise, apple cider vinegar, sugar, celery seeds, salt, and ground black pepper in a separate smaller bowl. Mix until the dressing is smooth and well combined.
