Homemade Coleslaw

With our family picnic the other day, we enjoyed a batch of homemade coleslaw using local organic cabbage.  So much better than the grocery store pre-made slaw!
Coleslaw
3/4 c. mayonnaise
1/8 c. pure maple syrup
1/8 c. lemon juice
1/2 tsp. nutmeg
cabbage, finely chopped or shredded, about 4 cups

Whisk together dressing ingredients.  Combine the dressing with the cabbage.  Add any additional ingredients for color and crunch!  This time I added raisins, chopped green pepper, and a handful of pecans.  Add any other veggies, fruits, and/or nuts you might have on hand.

This recipe is very different from my mother's Cole slaw. I will share hers in a future post.

Isn't it amazing how many different slaw recipes there are out there? I have never heard of one with maple syrup.
