Fiona's Murphy Slaw

Fiona's Murphy Slaw

Salad:
1 head green cabbage, fine shredded
1/2 head red cabbage, fine shredded
1 bunch green onions, sliced
1 large carrot, fine shredded
2 Fuji Apples, julienned
2 Asian Pears, julienned
1 cup dried cranberries
1/2 cup pecan pieces

Dressing:
1 cup Mayonnaise
1 tsp salt
1 tsp celery seed
1 cup cider vinegar

OOPS! 1/4 cup Spicy brown Mustard

Whisk all in bowl and pour over salad...but I messed up...I grabbed the squeeze bottle of Spicy Brown Mustard instead of the Mayo and got about a quarter cup in there before I realized my mistake.

It's delish!

The dressing was giving me fits. Usually, for a joke, I'll add tuna to something it doesn't belong in...like Shrek's birthday cake one year (just on one corner, not the whole cake!).

That's so funny! I may have to adopt that tradition (or adapt).

Wow, Princess. That was fast, and it sounds really, really good. If your Harry Potter test is anything like this, I'm doomed. ROFL

I took this to another level--I used 1 kohlrabi in addition to the apple, used key lime juice, and poppy seeds (no pears--yuck), dried cherries, and walnuts. I also used equal parts mayo and "yogurt" cheese (could have been Greek yogurt). It's chilling for tonight--I have some homemade sausages thawing. It has been really humid here lately (I'm on my 4th change of clothes for today and have been running through the sprinkler--first time when I got back at 6:30 from walking the dogs, again at 8:30 after using the push mower to mow alongside the driveway--about to go through the sprinkler again
), so I don't want to cook--but will grill the sausages.
