When in doubt … just ask mom!

I’ve been trying to make cole slaw. I’ve gone to my favorite places and the results were, well, less than wonderful. Yesterday I just called mom and finally got what I was looking for. Cole slaw so good I could seriously eat all of it in one setting. In the past I have made my own version of Asian slaw, which is fabulous, but I wanted to branch out and try something different. I’m not sure what the heck I was thinking. I love moms. It’s just the right blend of creamy and tangy without being too mayonnaise-y. I didn’t write down what I did so this is from memory. Just futz with it till it tastes the way you want it to.

Blend together until you get a nice consistency, like say, melted ice cream.
3 tbsp mayo
1/4 cup milk
1/4 cup cider vinegar
3 tbsp sugar
1/4 tsp salt

TASTE and modify as you like or need

1/2 of a small cabbage, finely chopped (I use my fancy new food processor!) but you can do it all by hand VERY easily, I promise!
1/4 of a small red cabbage, finely chopped
3 good sized carrots

Put it all in a bowl and stir till it’s all evenly coated. Try not to eat it all in one setting. Good luck.
