"Skinny" the above combination
of goodness and get this:
This is now my favorite Coleslaw recipe.
I found this recipe for Coleslaw, and it is now a favorite of ours.
Backing up a bit, a lot of Wisconsinites consider Friday to be "Fish Fry Day/Night" (it's sort of like our own special weekly HOLIDAY)! Yes, for many, it is THAT special! And,... one of the main "options" (sides) often offered with the fish fry meal is Coleslaw. I can eat almost any Cole Slaw, but that isn't true for my husband. He doesn't like Coleslaw to have a strong "BITE" to it.
This recipe is different. It is "mellow", yet flavorful. Some say this is the recipe most similar to the Coleslaw that was or is (?) served at
- 2 Bags (10 oz. each) of finely shredded cabbage and chopped to about 1/4" pieces. (Instead of buying the bags, I used one small head of cabbage, removed and discarded the core, and "grated" chunks of cabbage in my food processor. Doing it this way, I ended up with an extra 4 oz., but that didn't matter.)
- 1/2 cup of finely chopped carrots (I first grated these, too, with my food processor and then, using the swirly blade in the food processor, I made the grated pieces a little bit smaller.)
- 4 teaspoons red apple cider vinegar (plain white vinegar will work, too)
- 1/4 cup granulated sugar
- 1/4 teaspoon dry mustard powder
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1 cup mayonnaise (I used the Hellmann's® brand.)
