I know it's been a while, but life has been so busy. I'm still cooking great stuff every night, so I'll try to get you caught up. First, my cole slaw. I made a fun dinner last night - cheddar stuffed sliders with homemade bbq sauce on butter brushed dinner rolls, garlic and brown sugar rubbed sweet potato fries, and buttermilk apple and mixed cabbage slaw. The burgers and fries were great, but the slaw stole the show. The Man hates slaw, a fact he forgot to mention when I told him what I wanted to make for dinner. So I blindly made a batch from a few simple items:
diced granny smith apple
The dressing is not that sloppy mayo based dressing, and it doesn't drown the slaw. I like to taste all of the ingredients, not just the dressing.
spicy brown mustard
unfiltered apple cider vinegar
salt and pepper
This dressing will keep, and is yummy on salad too, so if you make too much don't throw it out, or worse, drown your slaw. Add half of what you think you should need to your cabbage mix - both the cabbage and the apples will give off liquid which can also contribute to drowning it. Toss it gently, getting everything well covered, and then set it aside at room temp for at least 30 minutes. Crunchy, sweet, tart, creamy, flavorful. The Man went nuts for it, even put it on his burgers AND took some for lunch today. Score.
