Cabbage anyone?

My little brussel sprout has adored cabbage since she was wee small.  Sauerkraut especially, but also homemade coleslaw.  I remember going to a potluck one time and she asked what the “green stuff” was on her plate.  “Coleslaw”, I told her–to which she replied, “but we NEVER eat green coleslaw!”

Here is a little home style coleslaw–not green–thank goodness.  Bil and Madeleine would eat this every day if I made it!

Creamy Coleslaw
thinly slice 1/2 head of small green cabbage, or shred–it’s up to you
shred 1 carrot
1 green onion chopped



Dressing
1/3 cup mayonnaise
2tbsp sugar
2 tbsp vinegar
cracked pepper.


Mix dressing ingredients, and adjust to suit your taste (sometimes it needs a bit more sugar, sometimes it needs a bit more vinegar.  When you have it just right add cabbage, onion and carrot and combine well. Top with paprika if you like.

TIP:  My mom adds a little sliced olive to her coleslaw, my mother-in-law adds a little onion–you can jazz it up however you like!
Enjoy!
