I was amazed that there wasn't a cole slaw section since cole slaw and smoke are like peas & carrots! Who ever heard of lettuce and tomatoes on a pulled pork/brisket/chipped/sliced BBQ sandwich on a bun? Oh My!
A lady friend from down the river brought me a HUGE head of cabbage this week to ensure greenness for St.Paddy's Day. Is that pretty or what?
Thinking it was plenty I immediately thought of the ways I could make it cause folks to smile. Stuffed cabbage? Naaaa..... Fried rice? Naaaa..... I know I need some for boiled cabbage for Monday but....... I do love cole slaw and my recipe is hard to beat. Besides it you make cole slaw its like beans each day after its better than before, guessing its has something to do with the dehydrating effect upon it.
And that is it, Tonight is simplicity night. Equal parts, sugar, oil, vinegar, and Mayo
There is a very fine line between sweet and sour with this slaw. Its all what you like. Personally I usually use olive oil and wine vinegar, just cause I like the taste better but vegetable oil and white vinegar or apple cider works just as well.
This bowl is the right size when filled with shredded cabbage for 1/4C of each. When you put it in it doesn't look like near enough, but it'll grow on ya as the sugar dehydrates the cabbage. best to make slaw a day in advance, but if caught with your pants down, add the sugar first and let sit as long as possible, then add the others just before serving.
Sweet NC Cole Slaw Recipe
Fresh sweet cabbage (shredded however you like it)
Stir, and adjust to suit your pleasure
I sometimes add a carrot for some color, maybe a little ground onion, if its sweet maybe some raisins. whatever suits your fancy.
Its keeps well, its good for you, no salt, gets better as it ages, simple to make........ I ran out of fingers, how many wins is that?
No real Bear view, but its in a number of my plated Q-views.
I love cabbage but the night after eating it is NOT good for a date night, if ya know what I mean......
