Cole Slaw Recipe
Believe it or not, we eat a lot of cole slaw around here. My kids LOVE it and it is a super healthy, cheap to buy and a great vegetable to feed them. We usually eat with fish (any white fish, lightly coated with flour and salt and pepper and cooked in a frying pan in a little bit of peanut oil) but lately, I have been making it and serving on pulled pork sandwiches. (I made my last recipe up, I am sure there are many good ones out there, I ended up brining pork tenderloin--my favorite cut of pork--in salt and brown sugar and then cooking it in the crock pot with various seasonings on it--the only one I can remember is celery seed at the moment.)
Anyway, just so I have it written down, here is our cole slaw recipe. We like it "edgy" and not sweet.
1 head of cabbage, cut into small pieces (see picture)
In a jar:
1 cup mayo (I buy the olive oil mayo, they say it is 1/2 the fat)
3/4 cup apple cider vinegar
1/2 teaspoon pepper
salt (to taste, sorry I didn't measure that part)
Shake until well emulsified
Pour over cabbage and mix.
Easy and yummy
