Maybe you want to cook for your dad this weekend – apparently, it’s Father’s Day on Sunday. Or maybe you want to make something special for someone else in your life. Maybe you live in a place where the sun actually shines, and you’re planning a barbecue. Or a picnic! And maybe you’ve been thinkin’ about coleslaw. Maybe you’ve been thinkin’ about coleslaw, and you’re thinkin’ – I’m gunna makes me some coleslaw. I’m gunna makes me some coleslaw right good like.
If this is the case, and you are indeed thinkin’ about slaw, you’re going to want to try this slaw. This ain’t no fancy slaw. It ain’t got no mango or peanuts or fancy leafy things. This here slaw is your classic slaw. A classic, creamy slaw. Slaw you could eat beside some fried chicken. Slaw you could eat with a picnic sandwich.
This makes a huge honkin’ bowl of slaw. Like really big. When you take a medium-sized head of cabbage and chop it up small, it kinda fills a bowl. But that’s good. It’ll feed a lot of people. And those people will be happy. So those people are unlikely to resist when you tell them that they are in charge of clean up.
