Coleslaw updated

Nothing better to cool down a hot evening or a spicy main dish like coleslaw.
My grandmother had her favorite: shredded green cabbage soaked in salted water
to crisp it, then drained.  A dash of vinegar, sugar to balance the tang, and mayonnaise to taste.
Mixed well, perhaps a bit of red cabbage for color, and a sprinkle of dried mustard for
spice.  Simple and delicious, and you probably already have a variation of it. 

But want trying to impress at a summer potluck? Try this variation via Martha Stewart. 
Napa cabbage, radishes, daikon, and a zingy dressing that will knock the socks off of
your conventional slaw.  Find it here.

  5. And it was really, really good. I could live on that during the dog days of summer.

  6. I'll have a crack at this, I don't like shop bought coleslaw as it is usually too runny.

  7. I think I've had this version. And it was really really good.

    btw: I bought two bags of mixed slaw and two jars of peanut butter today at Costco. It's like it was meant to be

  9. Coleslaw, my all time favorite summer salad. Try it with a dash of curry powder in it for a once-in-a-while kick.
