I am a minimalist in life so why shouldn't I apply what I am to my online personality as well? The reason I loved to blog was to share what I learned from recipes and the happiness I felt from feeding others. For the last 2 and a half years, I spent more time taking photos trying to copy and match other popular food bloggers. My personality wasn't in it. I was simply replicating. Now I am ready to blog my way: the simple way without the bells and whistle. What better way to start than a simple oil and vinegar slaw.
Oil and Vinegar Slaw
Note: This is simple, but the flavor goes great in sandwiches. It cuts the grease in heavier meats. I made mine with a turkey patty seasoned with smokey BBQ spice rub and a bit of whole grain dijon mustard on toast.
1/2 head of a small cabbage, sliced thinly
4 TBSP white vinegar
1 TBSP canola oil
1/2 tsp black pepper
1/4 tsp sugar
1/8 tsp salt
- Mix white vinegar, oil, black pepper, sugar, and salt.
- Pour over sliced cabbage and mix.
- Let it sit in the refrigerator for at least 12 hours. Mix every 3 or 4 hours to redistribute the sauce.
- Enjoy! Feel free to add more pepper or salt to taste.
