    FriscoFrankie's All-American Coleslaw

    I make ths Cole slaw couple times a week. Last night as the sun was setting just off my balcony:


    Was the perfect back drop for me to put together some cool coleslaw to go with my Isaan sausage and sticky rice. I love the tangy/creamy flavor of a good coleslaw I have always hated that sweet stuff.
    For the dressing your gonna need


    The herb is dill. If you like a sweet, you could use that salad crream but then, if you like a sweet coleslaw, What the fuck're you readin' this recipe for???
    I smashed and chopped and minced the garlic 'til it was damn near just juice. I prefer the round gratiem ton but the local didn't have any this week so we are stuck with this stuff which lacks the flavor is more fiberous and just less fun to work with. Tastes Ok though.
    I use a 2:1 mix of mayo to sour cream. We squeezed all the juice out of one lemon, threw in the garlic, dill then added my two parts mayo and one part sour cream


    Those two lemons cost me 60 baht folks, most times I can't find 'em. I have grown used to using the limes; this is a special treat. Nothing but the best for you guys...

    Now what you've got here is the base of a coupla decent dressings. Leave out the dill throw in a handfull of bleu cheese and you've got a fantastic bleu cheese dressing, maybe add a drop or two of balsamic if you like. Add other herbs, some cucumber and blend this thing and call it what you want, but man is it good!
    Anyway, back to coleslaw; almost forgot the "secret ingredient." This ingredient makes all the difference between an "OK" cole slaw and one that sings on the tastebuds. Slop in a nice big dollop of that in then:


    That's prepared horseradish folks, looks like this in the jar:


    Now, back in the world, I'd buy me some root, chop it up and blend it with some rice wine vinegar. That stuff was sharp! This appears to be a bit old, and is certainly weak, so be generous with it. Taste as you go. Remember, you can always add more.
    Mix it all up in a bowl or jar till it looks smooth & pourable


    When making coleslaw, you got to have cabbage. Now some folks like carrot (too sweet) or maybe some red cabbage, occasionally, I'll slice up some onion paper thin; truth be known folks, all you really need is cabbage.
    When slicing the cabage there's the big square chopp and the thin long strand chopp. I like it thin because the slaw wilts a bit faster and is tastier quicker, But I like the body of the larger chop too. So i go for a mixed chopp.


    Pour the dressing over and mix well, not too much dressing, just enough to coat. The cabbage will sweat some fluid giving the slaw a slightly milder flavor. The dressng is full of flavor and should be thick, just pourable. When the claw is well tossed and evenly coated put in the refer and wait until tomorrow, if you can. Slaw is always better when the cabbage is allowed to sweat and wilt a bit, I usually end up maing it a couple hours before the meal and it's quite crunchy and delicious, won't hurt if you don't wait.

    This slaw after a day, or even two is perfect for throwin' on a BBQ beef (or pork) sandwhich.

    I'd show y'all a pic of the finished product but the first pic looked lilke shit, the next pic? Who want's to look at an empty bowl? The ol' lady loves this slaw and I can't keep it in the house. You can see it in the What Was Your Dinner? (What was your dinner?) thread

    no just the juice of one lemon.

    nice, juicy lemon, ate the pulp with a touch of salt.

    Here I usually use the limes. it will take about 2 - 3 limes. the limes make it much tangier (tangy-er) usually one goodsized lemon is enough. I left one ingedient out of the recipe tho, salt. Salt will help the colslaw to wilt and alow is needed to just nip the acidity in the lemon. And it just tastes good.

    It looks a hell of a lot better. I would put a lot of cracked black pepper in it and a bit less horseradish. But thats the dad in me. The first time my kids tried horseradish was a funny day indeed. Well funny to me, not to them that for damn sure.

    Teh horse radish was weak and old, that just gave it a bit of flavor. Really, the sour cream and mayo knock all the sinus cleaning properties of it out...
    buying horse radish is a bit of crap shoot anyway so it's always best to start light and add as you go. I couldn't find it once and used that heinz "horseradish sauce" waste of time and money.

    my wife loved it too and we ate it with a nice tuna salad.

    Thanks for the recipe.

    I made that slaw last night and it was great. I added a some red chili flakes from our pricky new chilies in the garden. Superior stuff, went down great with the cheeseburgers. Even the kids loved it.

    There isn't anything as good as "home cooking". We eat out often enough but the satisfaction of putting your thoughts, the ingrediants and whuppin up something at home helped done with a nice Ozzie red just cannot be beaten. Particularly if we can maange to get the kids off to bed and follow up with a little home excercise on the sofa.

    That is the hardest bit let me tell ya. Most Thais stay in the room until the kids sleep if they are under 10. I say go to bed and leave mom and dad alone. Damn, wish I could say that.
