Cabbage anyone?

My little brussel sprout has adored cabbage since she was wee small.  Sauerkraut especially, but also homemade coleslaw.  I remember going to a potluck one time and she asked what the "green stuff" was on her plate.  "Coleslaw", I told her--to which she replied, "but we NEVER eat green coleslaw!"

Here is a little home style coleslaw--not green--thank goodness.  Bil and Madeleine would eat this every day if I made it!

Creamy Coleslaw

thinly slice 1/2 head of green cabbage, or shred--it's up to you
shred 1 carrot

1/3 cup mayonnaise
2tbsp sugar
2 tbsp vinegar
cracked pepper.

Mix dressing ingredients, and adjust to suit your taste (sometimes it needs a bit more sugar, sometimes it needs a bit more vinegar.  When you have it just right add cabbage and carrot and combine well. Top with paprika if you like.

TIP:  My mom adds a little sliced olive to her coleslaw, my mother-in-law adds a little onion--you can jazz it up however you like!
