German Style Coleslaw
Here in Wisconsin, one of our favorite things to do on a Friday Night is to head out to our favorite local tavern or restaurant, order a brandy old fashion and enjoy a good ‘ol Friday Night Fish Fry. What goes with beer battered, deep-fried fish? Besides french fries, tarter sauce and buttered rye bread? German Style Coleslaw, of course! Some people like a creamy style coleslaw and others like an oil-vinegar style. Me, I like any kind of coleslaw.
German-Style Coleslaw is made with a fantastic homemade vinegar/oil dressing. We used a German Seasoned Vinegar by Hengstenberg. We ordered this tasty German seasoned vinegar on Amazon, but you might be able to find it in specialty stores or in large supermarkets in your area. You can also use distilled white vinegar, white wine vinegar or even an apple cider vinegar.
If you normally prefer a creamy style coleslaw, after trying this recipe we might have changed your mind. This recipe makes a tangy, slightly sweet dressing, that goes perfect with the crisp cabbage and carrots. The dressing consists of vinegar, dry mustard, celery seeds, salt, sugar and vegetable oil. Even my 4 year old grand-daughter loved this coleslaw, she ate two bowls!
Cole Slaw Girl
After I made this recipe for German-style coleslaw my daughter-in-law made the comment to me about how much Willow loved coleslaw. Willow had recently spent the night at Kim and Bob’s house and they ordered broasted chicken with all the fixin’s from a favorite restaurant. Kim said she couldn’t believe Willow ate 2 bowls of slaw. I told her my story too and after that Willow was crowned the official “Coleslaw Girl!”
