I love coleslaw but most of the prepared slaw in the markets are just OK. One day I decided to make my own coleslaw and found Bobby Flay’s recipe on the Food Network site. It didn’t take long for me to make my usual adjustments and now the recipe is my own version of Rocky Top. It’s coleslaw so you have to keep it simple. Use a bag of pre-shredded coleslaw from the market. The quantities for the dressing are all reduced from the original recipe. I’ve substituted garlic powder for fresh garlic and celery salt for celery seed and salt. Who has champagne vinegar laying around? I use apple cider vinegar. All dressing quantities are estimated. Let your taste buds be your guides.
Cole Slaw Dressing:
1 cup mayonnaise
1/2 cup sour cream
garlic powder (to taste)
2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
1 tablespoon granulated sugar
1 – 2 teaspoons celery salt
Can you visualize a huge scoop of this coleslaw on top of a cold turkey meatloaf sandwich? I thought so.
