Hello...I hope y'all are having a good Saturday!
Rarely is it that I do a post on a Saturday and actually,
rarely is it that I do a recipe post....period!
But today I made this delicious slaw and I wanted to share it with you.
Now like many things I make, I kinda just made up it up and tasted it as I went along.
I mean, it's slaw dressing after all...not gourmet cooking!
It all started yesterday after I purchased this bag of shredded veggies at the grocery.
I have had the broccoli slaw many times before and it is delicious but when I looked closer,
I realized this was something a bit different...it's called Super Blend...
...and it is a super blend...just look at the ingredients!
I wrote this post on a whim and should have taken the photo of the bag when it was full.
It would have been so much more pleasing to the eye...oh well.
There were no serving suggestions on the bag but right away my mind went to coleslaw.
I toyed with the idea of just buying a jar of Marzetti's Slaw Dressing but decided to make my own.
Now I usually don't really measure and of course you can always use your own recipe,
but here is my best guess off the top of my head...
*an almost empty jar of mayonnaise (maybe 1/3 cup)
*a couple of sloshes of apple cider vinegar (maybe 1/4 cup)
*6-8 packets of stevia sweetener (more or less, according to your taste)
*fresh ground black pepper
I put the vinegar in the nearly empty mayo bottle and shook it to get it all out.
Like I said, I'm completely guessing at these measurements...
...but isn't life really all about guesswork anyway?
Mix it all together and refrigerate...but of course you can eat it right away if you choose.
I always like to let it marinate in the dressing awhile.
Now here in NC, most of us eat slaw with our pork barbecue and I'm not talkin' about as a side...
...we eat the slaw on the barbecue...on the bun.
So when there is no barbecue in sight but there's a dab of left over sloppy joe meat in the fridge,
well, it was a pretty good substitute!
It was so good, y'all!
I added a few veggie sticks for some extra added crunch...
...almost like fries but probably a bit better for you...maybe...just a bit.
And that was my lunch!
It really was so much better than your regular run-of-the-mill coleslaw
and I will definitely be making it again...
...if I can remember my recipe!
Happy weekend, peeps!
