Smokin’ Cole Slaw

Okay, I have drawn out this cooking class to five episodes.  Today is the last installment.

This coleslaw recipe is from the 3 Guys Smokin website.   During the class they mentioned that they had a coleslaw that appealed to those that love creamy slaw and those that love a vinegar-based salad.   This is true.   It is really the best of both worlds.

I substantially decreased the amount of sugar;  in fact, I totally omitted it and added a bit of honey.   (I have to confess; I used a pre-packaged, already cut cabbbage-carrot mix for this dish too.   Forgive me.)

Creamy-Tangy Coleslaw
based on Poke’s Smokin’ Cole Slaw

1/8 c. honey
salt and pepper
1/8 c. 2% milk
1/4 c. mayonnaise (I used the olive-oil type.)
1/8 c. buttermilk
1 T. white vinegar (I used champagne vinegar.)
2 T. lemon juice
about 5 c. shredded cabbage (add carrots if you wish)

Place honey, salt and pepper, milk, mayo, buttermilk, vinegar, and lemon juice in a blender and mix well.   Pour over shredded cabbage.   Toss and let set in refrigerator for at least one hour.

This is all for the cooking class.   Thank you Big Guy, Poke-Chop, and Flap Jack.   It was a great class and we learned a lot and are eating well!

Thanks 3 Guys Smokin’  (and The Stock Pot)  for the great recipes, tips, a delicious meal and a memorable time.

Abigail, here is what that flower turned into.   It is called a Surprise Lilly because it sends up lots of leaves (but no flowers) in early spring.   All the leaves fade away and then when you have totally forgotten about it, these beautiful flowers pop up and surprise you.
