I can honestly say today has been an ordinary day. Nothing quickly grabbed my attention to say, “That’s what I will blog about today”. Usually something happens that plants a wee little seed in my mind and I’m off. Well the topic just hit; slaw, yes that is my topic today. I make a lot of slaw but very seldom mayonnaise based. Two reasons, my family does not like it (including me) and we use Miracle Whip. If you aren’t grinning now, let me inform you that the last one a funny. However we are a Miracle Whip family. My late husband liked Dukes, he had so few quirks I had to change (women you know exactly what I mean) I decided to let that one go. Neither one of us ever converted. If I made chicken salad, egg salad, or pimento cheese, two bowls were made. He was determined to make sure the kids were raised Dukies, mayo not the team; however since he never cooked or participated in any food prep except his once a month Saturday fried bologna sandwich, that didn’t happen. He remained the lone Duke’s person in our household. We prefer marinated slaw so I was surprised when I like this slaw. My daughter and I had it in November at the Disney Food & Wine when I went with her and her then fiancé to have their engagement pictures made. I was lucky enough to find the recipe on-line. By the way this was served under Vegetarian Crab-less Crab Cakes that were phenomenal. I have acquired that recipe also and we have made those several times.
This is the recipe I grabbed the wrong chili sauce and my mouth was on fire from tasting it and roomie declared it the best slaw I have ever made. So I have included both options.
3/4 cup mayonnaise or Miracle Whip 1/4 cup chili sauce with garlic or Thai Chili Garlic Paste 2 tsp rice vinegar 4 cups cabbage, shredded (I used green and red) 1 red bell pepper, thinly sliced 1 yellow bell pepper, thinly sliced 1 small red onion, thinly sliced Salt and pepper to taste
