Now that the girls are married and out of the house, I cook differently for Larry and me. I thought my days of collecting cookbooks were over until I saw this one. I bought it and I think it's a winner. Jenny made the cole slaw for our Memorial Day weekend picnic, and it was very good. Here's the recipe:
1 head green cabbage finely chopped
3 green onions finely chopped
1/2 cup sliced almonds
1/2 cup sesame seeds
1/4 cup butter
2 3-ounce packages ramen noodles, flavor packets discarded
2 tablespoons sugar
1/2 cup vegetable oil
3 tablespoons red wine vinegar
1 teaspoon salt 1/2 teaspoon pepper
Mix cabbage and onions in large bowl. In a small saucepan over medium heat, brown the almonds and sesame seeds in the butter.
Combine the dressing ingredients in a small bowl and stir well. Just before serving, add the sesame seeds, almonds, and crushed raw ramen nooldes to the cabble and green onions. Pour the dressing a little at a time over the salad mix, then toss.
This blog will not become a Julie/Julia thing where I work my way through this cookbook. But I will let you know now and then what I've found out about this book. There are a lot of good recipes in this one.
