Tea's Coleslaw

It's Father's Day!  Happy Father's Day to all the Dad's out there that make memories with your kidlets and cherish each and every one!  You are a special breed of people, ya know!? :)  Today, for Father's Day, we decided to have a cook out of sorts.  The dang wind has blown and blown, so it's not like we could sit around outside and enjoy the food, but we sure could cook some burgers and hotdogs:)  We went out and took some pictures earlier today, waiting patiently (or not) for the wind to die down.  While we were driving, we were discussing our linner (lunch+dinner) menu.  We decided hamburgers, hotdogs, chips and coleslaw was the winner, however, Mike isn't too keen on regular coleslaw.  He doesn't care for the zip of vinegar that much!  I would have done mine and Kenzie's favorite salad, but he said he'd prefer something just simple (and I had to go for his decision since it is Father's Day).  So this is what I came up with!  It turned out real yummy and extremely mild.  I figure I have to go easy on the guy considering I FINALLY got him to try cabbage about 6 months ago.  We have to break him in s-l-o-w-l-y you see!  :)  Of course, you could add/subract/multiply/divide ingredients as you wish.  Happy Father's Day!!

Tea's Coleslaw

1 head cabbage
3 carrots

1 1/2 cups mayo
1/2 cup rice wine vinegar
1 1/2 tsp salt
2/3 cup sugar
2 Tbsp mustard
sprinkle of onion salt
2 Tbsp dill weed (I like Pampered Chef dill weed)

Use your food processor to slice cabbage and shred carrots.  In a separate bowl, combine all other ingredients.  Pour over cabbage and carrot mixture in large bowl until just moistened.  (I had 1 cup dressing left. If you have extra, either add more cabbage or refrigerate for later use:) ) Chill until ready to serve!  delicious!!!!!

 Happy Cooking!


Happy Father's Day to my other half!!!! I love you!
