Hello everyone! Time for a quick recipe. Who here loves cole slaw? Here’s a recipe I came up with years ago, it is tried and true and it’s probably our family’s favorite side dish. My boys will never turn their nose up at this cole slaw. 🙂
The great thing about this coleslaw. . . The dressing has many applications. Aside from the cole slaw, it can be used for:
- A homemade salad dressing
- Toss it with cubed cucumbers for a phenomenal cucumber salad
- Pasta salad
One time I added about 1/4 avocado to the base dressing and made a delicious avocado salad dressing. Let your mind roam; be daring with it! I’ve never tried it, but I bet it would be delicious added to mashed potatoes, egg salad, you name it. This recipe calls for shredded cabbage. I sometimes use my stand mixer attachment to do this, but slicing the cabbage by hand works well also.
Note: we can’t have eggs, so we have to substitute egg-free mayonnaise for the mayo. I haven’t found a homemade egg-free recipe for mayo yet. If you have one, please let me know!
