Coleslaw

coleslaw feat

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. Cut the core out of the cabbage.
