On the Web: the 4th of July, Picnics, Barbecue, and Cole Slaw
In the Palisades the 5k/10k races finished by 10am. As is the tradition, the night before folding chairs are put out to guarantee a curb-side seat for the parade.
We're home making food for our picnic. Our friends have called to confirm what they are contributing to the pot-luck picnic.
We saw a beautiful cabbage at the farmers' market, so we decided to add cole slaw to the salads we're bringing tonight.
Cole Slaw with Capers
Yield 10-12 servings
Time 30 minutes
1 bunch Italian parsley (washed,leaves and some stems, finely chopped)
1 scallion (washed, trimmed, white and green parts finely chopped)
1 1/2 cups mayonnaise
3 tablespoons white vinegar
3 tablespoons lemon juice
1/4 cup capers
Sea salt and pepper
Cut out the bottom core and discard. Slice into slabs then chop to create 1/2" square pieces.
Mix together all the ingredients in a large bowl. Taste and adjust the seasoning. Serve chilled.
