Can you feel it in the air? It’s spring! Spring brings outdoor parties, barbecues, and endless nights on the deck. Late night talks while stargazing, with a cocktail in hand.
Can you tell I’m excited for flip flop in weather?!
The moment I start making slaw in my kitchen, it’s the moment we all realize the days are getting longer, sunnier, and happier. Slaw brings back memories of Sunday afternoon barbecues and late night leftovers of pulled barbecued meats and cold cabbage slaw. It brightens any menu and can be dressed up or down for the occasion.
For a fancy take on cabbage slaw in any menu, whisk together trufﬂe oil and mayonnaise, using that as your dressing. Throw in thinly sliced ramps for extra ﬂavor, topping your hot protein with a cool slaw. What to make it a more casual affair?
Use this as a side dish at a barbecue, or as a component in a hot sandwich.
Another thing I love about cabbage is that it always, always impresses me when I slice into it. The pattern and color, especially of red cabbage, blows me away! Oh and did I
mention that it’s pretty good for you too? High in Vitamin C and a great source of Vitamin A, it’s known for it’s cancer prevention properties! Keeping it raw, like we did in
this recipe, makes it even better for your health!
