Food for Thought – July 26, 2016


For The Vista

Finally! Our cabinets and counter tops have been installed in our new office.

So watch the paper for the announcement of our Grand Opening–it’s coming soon.

Lots of food, entertainment, and door prizes!

For years, I’ve been searching for a good cole slaw recipe, and have wasted a lot of cabbages, never finding a slaw to my liking.

But my friend Sandy just shared this one with me that she found on, and it is a winner!

I think it’s going to make the list for our Grand Opening–it’s that good.

If you have a favorite slaw dish, please send it to me at [email protected], and I’ll share it with our readers. Enjoy!

Shred cabbage into a large bowl; add shredded carrot &onion.

Combine mayonnaise, sugar, vinegar, & celery seed.

Whisk or shake in a jar. Taste & adjust seasonings, adding salt & pepper to taste, or more mayonnaise & a bit more vinegar, if too sweet for your taste.

Add dressing to the shredded cabbage mixture, tossing as you add, until the cabbage is well moistened.

Refrigerate to chill thoroughly.
