Combination Coleslaw

I love an old-fashioned dinner on a fall day. That’s what we had Sunday. I threw a chicken in the oven to roast with some potatoes, carrots and an onion. It’s one of our favorite meals.

To go along with the chicken dinner, I made a combination coleslaw. I call it that because it contains cabbage and carrot. What made the slaw so special was that both the cabbage and carrots were in my garden only hours earlier.

The recipe is one that I put together after recalling the coleslaw my mom made during my childhood. These days, you can buy coleslaw dressing in supermarkets, but it was none of that at our house. Mom used to make her own dressing for the slaw. I don’t remember if she used Miracle Whip or mayonnaise. I just knew it was pretty tasty.

So, when I put my coleslaw together, it was a combination of the two. Hence, another reason to c all it combination slaw. I also added a medium-sized carrot. It was enjoyed by all. My secret to success is just the right combination of sugar, vinegar and garlic powder.

Give it a try, and let me know what you think.
