Bon Appetit Classic Coleslaw Dressing
This recipe has 9 ingredients for the dressing (and then cabbage of course). The dressing takes only minutes to prepare and the ingredients were all easily found at my local grocery store. I used homemade dill pickles and brine, which I had made a couple of months back. I followed the remainder of the recipe as written. I only used straight cabbage for the slaw, I didn't add carrots or any other vegetables.
A couple of years back I lost the Julienne slicer that I used to use to shred cabbage, Since that time I have been doing my shredding by hand. which leads to slightly larger shreds. I have the attachment for my food processor, but I have yet to use it, maybe I'll learn this winter. Due to shredding with a knife, my coleslaw had extra sauce, which I don't think would have been there if the cabbage pieces were uniform. The size of the pieces in no way detracted from the taste, just something to note if you are shredding by hand. This recipe went well with the Pulled Chicken Sandwiches and I had enough leftovers to use again on re-heated Lexington Pulled Pork. A great simple and straightforward coleslaw recipe.
