Cabbage - Cole Slaw

Sweet Cole Slaw

The season of fresh produce from local farmer's markets is here.  Fresh cabbage is plentiful - or will be in a few days.  This is a very simple recipe for a delicious cole slaw.

1 head of cabbage
1 small can of crushed pineapple
1 granny smith apple
1 pint jar of Jimmy's Cole Slaw dressing
Poppy Seed- a tablespoon or so.

Chop the cabbage - I use the slicing disk on my food processor, but otherwise just slice very thinly with a sharp kitchen knife. Chop the granny smith apple into small chunks, then add in a small can of crushed pineapple (drain), shake on some poppy seed, and stir the Jimmy's Cole Slaw dressing on the cabbage mixture.

Simple, fast, tasty -- very good.

Very young cooks will be able to make this cole slaw with just a little help with the food processor and with the chopping of the apple.  Makes a great side dish for meat loaf, spaghetti and meat balls, lemon baked chicken, actually any main dish that requires a salad of some sort.
Good food and good books go together -- Order cookie cutters, aprons, and baker's cloths and some unique "bookish" gifts from Green Frog Gifts -- many $10.00 or under.
