You might think of coleslaw as a summer, picnic food, but when you have half a cabbage hangin’ around, you gotta eat it up. I made golabki & had this big hunk of cabbage sittin’ on the counter. I had a fridge full of veggies, so of course slaw was the obvious choice.
Making your own slaw is super easy. If you can use a knife, you can make slaw. If you read the ingredients on those plastic tubs at the grocery store, you will WANT to make your own! With all those colorful veggies, it could be used as a centerpiece on your picnic table.
For the slaw dressing:
- 1/3 cup salad dressing (I used mayonnaise)
- 1 tablespoon vinegar
- 2 teaspoons sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon celery seed
Stir dressing ingredients in a Pyrex measuring glass & set aside.
- half a cabbage
- 1 red onion
- 1 green pepper
- 2-3 carrots, scrubbed
- Cut the core out of the cabbage.
- Chop cabbage, save core for the chickens.
- Chickens can get bored cooped up all winter, they will appreciate something to peck at.
- Chop the rest of the veggies.
- Stir cabbage & veggies in a huge bowl.
- Stir dressing with vegetables.
- Refrigerate overnight.
