Coleslaw Preparation

Cast of Green Characters

Green Cabbage

Green Onions

Green Sugar Snap Peas

Almonds, Sesame Seeds, Ramen Noodles

The full recipe is posted on my Xanga site along with a photo of the finished product.

Boy! Using a food processor makes this recipe easier. The almonds are roasting in my toaster oven.

Sometimes grated cabbage is available at the grocery store, but I prefer a finer grind :)

Hand chopping doesnt bother me and it allows for better control of the shapes.

Last but not least is preparation of the dressing, which I do in my blender. I skip the sugar, an ingredient found in most slaw recipes. It seems like an easy way to cut back on calories. That's 2/3 C safflower oil and 1/3 cup white wine vinegar for 2 packets of Ramen seasoning.

Usually there are leftovers of this wonderful salad.

Here's how they become useful: I'm planning to add 1 C of slaw to 2 C chopped Romaine plus some leftover rib-eye steak, a handful of Bleu Cheese, a cuke, and some cherry tomatoes. Serve with a bit of French bread and a glass of Merlot.

Voila! Bon Appetit!

How are you using leftovers at your house?

  1. Yes, leftovers here. We have plenty of pork leftover from the wedding. I served it to the 30+ folks here on Sunday, and with still more leftovers, I'm fixing Brunswick Stew for supper. We're celebrating a 16th birthday here, so the girls have baked a chocolate cake. They even baked cookies for their brother to take to school tomorrow...his actual birthday anniversary date.
