cereta: Garlic (Garlic)
[personal profile] cereta
This is really just a side dish, but it's a side dish that will help fill out a sandwich or hot dog lunch, and it keeps beautifully. It's also what I call a secret ingredient recipe: something that's really just a basic recipe with something special added.

(Note: shamelessly stolen from my local grocery. Hey, they don't always have it!)

Herb Cole Slaw

1 bag slaw mix (you can certainly shred your own cabbage for this)
2 small red onion, halved and sliced thinly
1 cup mayonnaise*
1-2 tablespoons vinegar (U use white wine)
1-3 teaspoons sugar
1-4 sprigs fresh tarragon

I am not a bit tarragon fan, but I have to tell you, it makes this slaw. That and the red onion turn it into something I can't get enough of. Like many salads, it gets better over the course of a few days, as the onion mellows and the flavors mix.

Makes about 4 side serving. 3 if you're me. 2 if you're me and have a small person demanding half my serving (seriously, my two-year-old scarfs this).

*Slaw dressing can be adjusted for taste - I like mine more creamy, less vinegary.

Side note: if anyone has suggestions for tags, let me know!
