Sweet Slaw

When I was little I loved coleslaw. When I was ten years old I found out that it was made out of cabbage. Cabbage! I couldn't believe it! How could an awful, smelly cabbage taste so good? Well it turns out that the secret's in the sauce. Here's a quick and easy recipe that will forever change the way you see the slaw.
Sweet Coleslaw
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1/4 cup vinegar (we used apple cider)
1/2 cup of sugar
salt and pepper to taste
1 shredded cabbage
1 shredded carrot
the juice of 1/2 a lemon

For this recipe all you really need to do is mix the dressing then add the veggies. That's it. Yes, it's that simple. If you don't want to shred your own cabbage then one of those bagged coleslaw mixes will be fine. Don't go for the bottled dressing though - it's always better to make your own. This dish gets better as you let the ingredients sit together so we strongly suggest that you prepare it at least a day before you plan on eating it especially if you're bringing it to some sort of potluck picnic.

We hope you enjoy this slaw! It's good on hamburgers and (especially) hotdogs or just on its own. Keep cooking, friends, and remember:

No kitchen, no problem!
