I'm looking for a Cole Slaw recipe. Not just any cole slaw. And not with mayo or (yuck) Miracle Whip.
No. No. No.
This is a vinegar based cole slaw. The kind that makes your taste buds explode.
Let me back up and explain. My parents didn't take us out to eat very much when we were growing up. As in, almost never. But, when we did go out, we went to this fabulous chicken joint ~ in hindsight, it was a dive bar ~ that had THE BEST fried chicken and a spicy vinegar based cole slaw. I'd get a double order of slaw and forget the fries. Then I'd eat everyone else's slaw at the table.
I really loved that cole slaw.
I've tried to make it but can't get the proportions right.
So. I'm looking for a recipe that is cabbage based with a dressing of vinegar, white wine, sugar, garlic, red onion (or shallot) and that special something that I just haven't figured out yet.
Please don't keep me in suspense. I'm sure one of my genius foodie friends knows that that special something is.
Wonder if that is where my love of Bacchus started...
