Stacey Slaw



I think I will change my last name from "Snacks" to "Slaw", it sounds better.

The word “cole slaw” comes from the Dutch word koolsla, which means cabbage salad.
Don't you love always getting a language lesson here?

If you don't like the typical slimy summer cole slaw from the deli, then give this fresh version a try.

I used my pickled red onions and some beautiful black seedless grapes for sweetness.

It stays in the fridge all week, and gets better the second day.

Stacey's Cole Slaw w/ Grapes & Pickled Onions:

1 package of shredded cabbage, red, green & white
1 large carrot, peeled & grated
1 stalk celery, chopped
1 tsp celery seed
1 tsp sugar
1/2 cup Hellman's REAL mayo
1/4 cup pickled red onions (recipe here)
2 tbsp cider vinegar
1/2 cup of black or red seedless grapes, halved
1/2 cup of fresh cilantro
1/4 cup sliced scallions
handful of chopped walnuts (optional)

Mix all ingredients in a large bowl, adding the grapes, green onions and walnuts last. Taste and adjust seasonings if necessary.

Refrigerate for a few hours so the flavors come together.



Garnish with fresh cilantro and enjoy!

Gorgeous! Pickled onions make anything taste better, if you ask me.
