Just something very simple this time around - Coleslaw! I grew up only knowing the coleslaw at Kentucky Fried Chicken. To me, that was what coleslaw was. But how wrong I was! When I grew up, (or maybe I should say became a little older because I don't think I've ever really grown up!!) I realised that coleslaw could be so, so much tastier and nothing quite beats home made slaw!
The Lovely Wife made this some time ago, as she IS after all the Salad Queen in our house. This version has sliced apples in it too for a whole lot more flavour. Theres no real recipe to this as its pretty much a matter of taste. As I said, she used Cabbage, Carrots and Apples. I like some onion in my Coleslaw but the Lovely Wife didnt put any in this time. This is kind of what he did:
Shred Cabbage and Carrots. Chop apples into small cubes. Mix together (rough measurements)
3 Tbs. white vinegar
4 Tbs. olive oil
1/2 tsp. mustard
dash of Worcestershire sauce
pepper, to taste
2 Tbl. sugar
and add in the shredded vegetables. Mix well. Then add in enough mayonaisse to taste.
There you have it. A quick and easy coleslaw recipe that makes a great side dish or even a quick light meal!
