Eating Better

This is a low-carb, easy, quick and delicious anytime food that is especially great for BBQ dinners. This fare provides you with a good amount of fiber, several vitamins and energy. It’s cheap and leaves little mess behind and doesn’t require any cooking at all. So, it’s also energy efficient and 'green,' or purple, if you’d like. Give it a try and enjoy the benefits of my version of the everyday standard called coleslaw…’cool salad’ in Dutch.

Thinly slice a medium head of green or purple cabbage, or mix the two colors, when sliced you'll want about four cups of cabbage.

Shred 1 carrot.
Use 1 tablespoon of dried onion or finely chop some green onions.
Use about 1 1/3 cups of mayonnaise; it can be diet, which is better for you.
Use one tablespoon of sugar.
Use ¼ cup of vinegar, white, brown or rice will do.
You’ll need some celery, ¼ cup chopped or about 1 teaspoon of dried seed.
Salt and pepper to taste, but be careful, this can over-power the other flavors so go easy on both.

You’ll want to refrigerate this dish about an hour before digging in. This plate can serve about 8 grown-ups or about 12 children. It will keep for about a day for leftovers but it must be covered and returned to the refrigerator within an hour of the end of your meal.

Blessings and Joy.
