Can you believe that until last week I had never made coleslaw before? With the help of our handy dandy kitchen aid Slicer/Shredder Attachment we were able to shred the cabbage and carrots our self without even flinching. If you don’t have a KitchenAid(you should buy one now – it will help you in the kitchen with so many things – especially with dough) or the Slicer/Shredder Attachment (you should buy one of those too), don’t fear you can buy shredded cabbage and carrots from the store, or you can grate your own the old fashion way with a cheese grater.
Anyway you do it, you should make some of this delicious coleslaw to enjoy on top of these southern bbq hot dogs we had. Or as a side to your favorite american meal.
3 cups shredded cabbage
1 cup shredded carrots
3/4 cup mayo**
1 1/2 TBS vinegar
2 TBS sugar
**We used non fat mayo and it tasted just as great. A simple way to make this recipe a little healthier.
1. Combine the cabbage and carrots in a medium sized bowl.
2. In a small bowl whisk together the mayo, vinegar and sugar.
3. Pour liquid over cabbage mixture.
4. Mix well.
