It wouldn't be summer without coleslaw. Am I right? Gotta balance things out a bit from all the grilled goodies I've had over the last month or so. Here's my version. It has a vague taste to the one you'd get from KFC. Another penny saver right here. No need to go out and buy coleslaw then I can make a HUGE batch just for around 5 bucks. Using fresh carrots and caggage from the farmer's market. I've already got the ingredients for the dressing. I'm sure most of you have them, too.
I let this sit for about a day in the fridge to let the dressing really marinate the cabbage. You don't want the cabbage taste when you bite into it. Two days would even be better.
I think I shall grill something now.
Little J's Coleslaw
4 carrots (shredded)
1 head cabbage (shredded)
2 small-medium red bell peppers (diced)
4 1/2 Tbsp rice wine vinegar
6 tbsp vegetable oil
3/4 c chopped sweet onion
1 c lite mayo
1/2 c sugar
In a large bowl, combine the cabbage, carrots and bell pepper.
In a separate bowl, combine all the dressing ingredients together. Mix well until all the sugar has dissolved. Then it over the cabbage and toss well. You want to evenly coat everything.
Then seal the bowl with plastic wrap and let it rest in the fridge for at least a day or two.
Toss again to redistribute the juices and dressing before serving.
