My kitchen confession is that I make up recipes a lot. Sometimes they work and other times they don't. Do you ever get creative in the kitchen or do you prefer to stick to a recipe as if it's law? Last night I improvised an asian-style slaw and I was quite fond of it. I mixed about 1/2 a bag of coleslaw mix with some chopped up leftover broccoli, some celery, cucumber and a little onion. I tossed the veggies with a crazy dressing I made. Now when I make these "creations" I never measure anything, so my apologies in advance because these are total guesstimations. But you can just mix everything and add more of certain things until you are liking the taste or, get creative and make some substitutions of your own. Ginger would be excellent in something like this but a) I did't have any and b) tragically, Anthony hates it.
(whisk together in a separate bowl so you can make sure it's yummy)
-1/3 cup cider vinegar
-1 tablespoon soy sauce
-1/2 teaspoon each of peanut oil and sesame oil
-1 tablespoon honey
-2 teaspoons olive oil
-some salt and pepper
Let it sit in the fridge for a little to make sure all the flavors come together. Enjoy, it's a nice side dish for the warmer weather that's slooooowly arriving in my neck of the woods.
