Place chopped cabbage into a large glass bowl and sprinkle with 1 tablespoon salt; toss and set aside for 1-1 1/2 hours to draw out excess water.
Mix the mayo, salad dressing, mustard, horseradish, pepper and honey together in a small mixing bowl; set aside

Pour salted cabbage into a large colander and drain, rinse with cold water to remove salt; drain well by gently pushing on cabbage to remove water. (or drain on paper towels)

Great dish to make ahead!
