Other than my mom's slaw, I've never seen anyone use tomatoes in a slaw recipe. I want you to try it; the addition of tomatoes in a cabbage-based slaw adds a little something extra nice.
Five-Minute Southern Slaw1/2 head of cabbage
two tomatoes cut into chunks
salt and pepper to taste
sprinkle of white wine vinegar
pinch of sugar
2-3 Tbsp. light olive-oil mayonnaise
1-2 tsp. mustard
Wash and cut the half cabbage into two wedges. Slice each wedge into thin strips and put them in a large mixing bowl. Add the mayonnaise and mustard to suit your taste, until the cabbage is no longer dry but is not saturated. Toss well with a set of salad tongs or two forks. Then add the vinegar, salt, pepper, and sugar to taste. Last, add the tomato chunks and toss lightly together. Serves 4.
I served this last night with baked chicken strips and sweet potato fries. It would also pair well with baked or fried fish or in place of a side salad with an entree.
Have a happy day,
