Recipe from a Coleslaw Addict

Yes, I must admit, since I can remember nothing could satisfy more than good classic creamy coleslaw.  Notice the word good, I honestly don't know how many don't meet this classification.  Most often it's okay, or fair, or just another coleslaw.  But take it from a connoisseur of coleslaw, this recipe will meet the most discriminating taste buds while satisfying old-fashioned uncle Ted at the next pig roast.

When shopping for ingredients, whatever you do, don't skip the white balsamic.  This is the secret.  This is the ingredient that makes people go, "Yes, they brought coleslaw again!".  And one last tip, when people ask for the recipe (this is not an "if" they ask) don't tell people what vinegar you use when you hand this recipe out.  It will drive them nuts.  Just write "vinegar", let them have the hassle of discovering what vinegar to use.

Simple Creamy Coleslaw ~ yes, it's that simple!

1 med. cabbage
1 med. carrot
1 sm. shallot

Shred cabbage and carrot to medium or fine consistency. Finely dice shallot.

Buttermilk Dressing
1 cup mayo
1 cup buttermilk
2 Tbsp. white balsamic vinegar*
2 Tbsp. sugar*
1 tsp. pepper
½ tsp. garlic powder

Whisk Ingredients together. Combine with shredded cabbage, carrots, and shallots. Chill until ready to serve. Serves 8 – 10
*These ingredients vary by taste buds.  Some people like it sweeter, some like it on the tart side.  Feel free to experiment!
