Coleslaw

Weirdly enough i never reallly liked coleslaw... for those of us in Malaysia, we are introduced to slaw by way of KFC. In Greece they dont serve slaw in KFC, they serve the set plate with regular salad with a vinegrette.

Anywho... i've made slaw now a coupla times due to the fact that i bought a big ol head of cabbage, used 20% of it in a chicken soup and ... well, waste not want not and what else does one do with cabbage. Made it once and the boy loved it, so what the heck.

Here is my recipe. Serves 3-4 depending on serving size.
3 cups finely chopped white cabbage
1 cup finely shredded carrot
1 small finely chopped red onion
throw them all into a bowl.
for the dressing (mix the following well):
2 tbsp olive oil
2 tbsp balsamic/cider vinegar
3 tbsp mayo/ salad cream/ miracle whip
half tsp mustard (optional)
1 tsp sugar
salt & black pepper
5 tbsp fresh milk

mix the veggies and dressing well, and let it sit in the fridge for a bit before serving. Mix again before serving. I throw in some olives when serving, just for an extra bite.

actually, they do serve slaw at KFC in Greece. just because you didn't notice they offer it as a side dish, doesn't meant they don't have it. take another look.
