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

This looks good and an excellent topping for a pork sandwich to boot! I'm going to have to give it a try.

We totally do the pulled pork thing with cole slaw! My husband being from D.C. area and both his parents from "the south," he grew up with "Bar-be-que." Being a westerner myself, it took me the longest time to figure out that when they said "Bar-be-que," they were talking about a MEAL called "Bar-be-que" (pulled pork), not a way of COOKing the meal.
