UPDATE: MY NEIGHBOR SNEAKED A LITTLE LEFTOVER SLAW FOR HERSELF (HENCE I BROUGHT HOME AN EMPTY DISH). HER HUSBAND ENDED UP EATING HER "STASH" FOR BREAKFAST THIS MORNING HAHA! Yum! What a nice change of pace from the usual mayonnaise-laden coleslaw! My hubs and I were invited to a neighborhood cookout this past weekend. I took this as our "dish" to contribute and brought nothing home!!! As many others did, I too subbed a pre-packaged coleslaw mix for chopped cabbage. Because I wanted some color, I used equal parts coleslaw / shredded red cabbage. The packaged mix I purchased didn't have many carrots in it, so I added a couple generous handfuls of matchstick cut ones (found near the coleslaw in my grocers produce section). My final change was tossing my cut apples in a tiny bit of lemon juice to prevent them from browning. Although this turned out pretty well, I do regret not "sweating" my cabbage (the bulk of all vegetables are comprised mostly of water, ESPECIALLY cabbage, cucumber and eggplant). By the end of the evening, a considerable amount of liquid had collected in the bottom of my bowl and my red cabbage "bled" a bit (if that makes any sense...). NOTE: DO NOT LEAVE OUT THE BELL PEPPER OR GREEN ONION! Both add a bit of savory to this otherwise sweet dish and are FANTASTIC complements. Thanks SO much for sharing this unique, summer-appropriate recipe, Aunt Mamie! I'll be adding this to my recipe box for sure. :-)
