A couple weekends ago, my mother-in-law served a fabulous summertime cole slaw with dinner. It was store-bought and had bits of cucumbers in it which gave it a fresh twist! When I got cabbage and cucumbers in the same week from my local CSA, I knew I had to try to recreate it!
Since I had never made cole slaw from scratch before, I did a bit of recipe searching online. I decided to take Bobby Flay’s recipe for Creamy Cole Slaw and adapt it a bit. I chose this recipe to work with because it uses sugar. I know from my experience with making my Macaroni Salad Recipe that sugar definitely improves the taste of salads made with mayonnaise by sweetening up! I adjusted some of the seasonings in Bobby’s recipe and then added in cucumbers to come up with this fabulous Summer Slaw!
