It's summer (yay!) and I've been craving a sweet and savory kind of cole slaw for a few days now. I love the fresh, crispness of a just made slaw and I find it incredibly filling. Yesterday when I was at the grocery store I grabbed one of my favorite pre-shredded slaw mixes - with broccoli, cauliflower, carrots and red cabbage.
But what I forgot to get was my favorite dressing. Desperate to figure something out with what I had on hand, I whipped together a quick little dressing that really pleased me. It was light, sweet, hot. Perfect.
My secret ingredient. Actually, this "find" is turning into my secret ingredient in quite a few items lately. I don't know what I did without this jar of hotness before.
And since the kids didn't want any and Ward was at work, I was sure to enjoy every last bit of it at dinner tonight. Yes. It was that good.
|quite satisfying and I didn't have to share at all|
