With A Side of Cole Slaw

No summer barbecue is complete without a little slaw! If you search on the internet, you’ll find countless recipes for slaw. Here’s an easy one for you. Unlike a lot of other slaw recipes, this one only contains a few ingredients and seasonings.

And this recipe is very easy to play with. You can easily double or cut the recipe in half. You can change the amounts of mayo and vinegar to suit your tastes, or you can add additiona veggies or seasonings. It’s up to you!

Add this to a sandwich, use it as a side item, or even use it as the base for salad. Enjoy!

Recipe for Slaw:
1 ½ lb green cabbage, shredded
2/3 cup mayonnaise
3 tablespoon cider or malt vinegar
2 medium carrot grated (optional)
¼ teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper (or more to season – optional)

Directions: In a large mixing bowl, toss the cabbage with the vinegar and salt. Grate the carrots and add to the mixture. Add the mayonnaise and toss well. Season with pepper if you desire.

Refrigerate for 30 minutes to an hour. Then toss just before serving. (Or if you’re in a hurry, you can skip the refrigerating and serve immediately, but refrigerating for 30 minutes is recommended.) If you want the slaw to be less crunchy, you can let it set in the refrigerator overnight.)

    Hhmmm… I love coleslaw! It's healthy for you, yet still yummy! Though I only get to taste it if I buy them from fastfoods or resto's, which is kinda annoying. 🙁
