The first frost has already hit Calgary. The fall has definitely arrived. In short, that means that all the cabbage in the garden had to be picked or they’d be lost. Seriously, we live in one of the shortest growing seasons possible! Oh well, we can’t argue with nature.
However, with the fresh cabbage from the garden, there’s something about this creamy dressing that just seems to be the perfect option for fall. Whether you’re adding it to red or green cabbage, it doesn’t matter. We decided that coleslaw simply doesn’t have enough attention. With so many incredible pairing options to cabbage, we knew we had to share first with you our recipe for just the dressing.
This creamy addition to your salad is made from ingredients you probably have already in your kitchen. There is no refined sugars and takes all of 5 minutes to make! Honestly, you’ll never buy a bottle of Coleslaw dressing again. In the fridge, this dressing stores well for weeks if necessary. Although, we’re sure it won’t last long…
Pair it with fresh cabbage and add the rest of your Coleslaw ingredients. The options are endless – try adding apples, carrots or raisins. Or maybe something totally out of the box like dressing on a hamburger!
Lol, either way, we’re sure your entire family will love this dressing and you’ll have no problem finishing the heads of cabbage sitting in your fridge. If you don’t garden, and you’re reading this thinking -maybe you should next year, it’s a TON of work…Fresh cabbage can also be found at your local market or even grocery store. Happy Coleslaw.
