Today is the Chamber's Annual Meeting and DH told me that "he'd" been asked to bring a salad for it. (Board members usually provide the side dishes.) When he told me this on Sunday, I knew exactly what I was going to make - my Spicy Coleslaw.
I make this throughout the year because it is so simple and so good! I'm not fond of mayo-based slaws, so when I found this recipe several years ago I was thrilled. It sounds like a whole lot of pepper, but, trust me - this slaw rocks!
1 16 oz. package of coleslaw mix
2/3 cup olive oil (Important - use the good stuff for this!)
1/4 cup white vinegar (I've used wine vinegar and tarragon vinegar also)
1/4 cup water
1 large clove of garlic, minced
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
2 teaspoons black pepper
1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
Whisk together the dressing and pour it over the cabbage and onions. The longer it sits the better it gets. Enjoy!
