Quick and Easy Mexican Slaw
I have recipes scattered all over, and I find them tucked in the most unusual places, some torn from magazines, some hand-written by me. Trying to get all organized,(snicker, snicker) and keep the best ones and getting rid of the rest. Finding some I haven't seen for years, this is one of them, very easy to play around with and make it your own. This is basic instructions.
- small to medium head of cabbage remove a few of outer leaves, then cut in half, let stand in ice water half hour
- cooked, diced ham, or chicken, your amount and choice
- 3/4 cup
- each celery, green onions, green bell pepper
- 1 jar
- drained pimiento
1Drain cabbage halves well, then shred, being sure to drain any excess water after shredding. Mix in large bowl the cabbage, choice of meat to taste,celery, green pepper, green onions & drained pimiento.
2Mix together well. Sprinkle lightly with salt.Mix salad with Mayonnaise which has been thinned with sweet or sour cream. Now is the time to add different seasonings of your choice. Line a serving dish with outside leaves of cabbage & fill the center with the slaw. Squeeze 1/2 lemon over all.
