The Family Cookbook
Culinary Heirlooms
by Doug Anderson
Reprinted from Bulletin 039, April 28, 2003

      Here's a summertime classic that really needs no introduction, but will get one anyway. I'm sure the author is as surprised as anyone to see her recipe in The Bulletin, since we obtained it in a covert action completely unbeknownst to her. Our agents are everywhere. Splash on some Sea & Ski and enjoy:

Muriel's Classic Cole Slaw

One half head of chopped cabbage
4 chopped green onions
1 package crushed ramen noodles
4 Tablespoons sunflower seeds
(Or sliced almonds)

Combine, in a bowl:
1/2 cup vegetable oil
3 teaspoons white or wine vinegar
3 teaspoons sugar
Flavoring packet from ramen

Combine both mixtures. Store in lock-tight plastic container. Invert and shake before serving.

      If you want to go way overboard, you could add carrots or a little purple cabbage, but you might want to save such flashy accessories for when Princess Margaret is coming to dinner or you have to cater an office picnic for NASA, or something.
      Thanks for your contribution Muriel, I'm only sorry we had to break and enter to get it!
