Pic-a-nic Slaw, a simple recipe.

June 1, 2009

Eating outside is one of my little life’s biggest luxuries. Whether it’s on the porch (like at the in-law’s Rustication Station, a.k.a., their house) or in the park, in the light or in the dark, I will eat outside, oh yes. I will eat outside.

So, here’s one of my favorite picnic recipes, which my Sweet Babu makes in gallons in the summertime. Do enjoy this most easy dish.

Pic-a-nic Slaw

  • 1/2 head of cabbage. Green, purple, whatever, though a quarter-head of each makes for pretty presentation.
  • 3 fresh broccoli stems. The florets are okay to add, too, if you want.
  • 3 big ol’ carrots. Juicy vitamin A!
  • 1 or 1 1/2 crispy apples, julienned or cubed. We like Fujis.
  • Apple cider vinegar, plus some salt and pepper, to taste

Run all the ingredients through a food processor. Alternatively, chop them to cole-slaw size. In a big bowl, combine the fruit and veggies with the apple cider vinegar, salt, and pepper, to your desired taste. You can add a dash of sugar, too, if you want some salt-sweet balance.

What are your favorite outdoor eats?

    No green eggs and hamming for rhymes… although it makes a nice intro to Shakespeare… iambic pentameter and all….:)I’m going to try the recipe… especially since now I”m gluten free and your recipe fits the bill. Thanks.

  3. Choir: We talked him down safely, and enjoyed a great picnic dinner, too!

    Stacey: Ooh! Let me know what you think of the slaw.
