A true friend is one where you can pick up exactly where you left off and the time and space between you doesn’t seem to matter. Sing. Sing a song. Sing out loud. Sing out strong: “I’ll Be There.” “Lean on Me.” “That’s What Friends are For.” “With a Little Help From My Friends.” “Thank You for Being a Friend.”
I’d like to be friends with Bobby Flay. Among other things, he has this great recipe for creamy cole slaw. (If you prefer a vinegar based cole slaw, be sure to revisit this recipe for Carolina Cole Slaw). As a side or as a topping to David’s pulled pork from the Big Green Egg (now you're going to want to be friends with David), this dish is a great sidekick.
- 1 head green cabbage, finely shredded (or 1 bag of Fresh Express Angel Hair Cole Slaw*)
- 2 large carrots, finely shredded, optional
- 3/4 cup best-quality mayonnaise
- 2 Tbsp sour cream
- 2 Tbsp grated Spanish onion (or ½ Tbsp onion powder)
- 2 Tbsp sugar, or to taste
- 2 Tbsp white vinegar
- 1 Tbsp dry mustard
- 2 tsp celery salt
- Salt and freshly ground pepper
*If you use a bag of cole slaw, cut the other ingredients in half. You can always add to it if you want more creaminess.
Combine the shredded cabbage (and carrots) in a large bowl. Whisk together the mayonnaise, sour cream, onion, sugar, vinegar, mustard, celery salt, salt, and pepper in a medium bowl, and then add to the cabbage mixture. Mix well to combine and taste for seasoning. Add more salt, pepper, or sugar if desired.
