So Bcakes comes home with a few bags of groceries and can't wait to show me the recipe cards that he brought home, along with all the ingredients. Guess what I am making the following night, yup. These exact recipes, also see Shiner Bock Meatloaf.
I don't mind, I love that he has a opinion when it comes to food.
This recipe for Citrus Coleslaw was interesting. I did make it twice, the first time using thier recipe and this second time using my adaptation. (Here's the original recipe for those wanting it: 8 ounces cole slaw mix, 1 cup mandrain oranges, chopped, 1/2 roasted slivered almonds, dressing: 1/3 cup Cookwell Fin and Feather Marinade, 1/3 cup mayonnaise, 1 orange, juiced and zested. Mix all of the ingreidients together and toss with the dressing.) I did keep most of it the same, my changes were ommitting the marinade and adding tropical trail mix instead of just almonds. Do let me tell you though that this trail mix was mostly nuts and dried soft fruits. I didn't buy the one with bananas in it. I found that the dish was sweeter and had alot more eye appeal than the original recipe. In regards to the marinade it was a clever way for them to push the product but it was better without it. So without further ado...
adapted slightly from the HEB version
8 ounces coleslaw mix
1 cup mandarin orange segments
1 cup tropical trail mix
1/2 cup juice from mandarin oranges
1/3 cup mayo
1 orange, juiced and zested
1 tbs. sugar
Mix the salad ingredients together and then toss in the dressing. Cool in the icebox until ready to serve.
This would be a great salad for a picnic. Perhaps some citrus glazed ribs along with it. MMMMMmmmm sounds tempting.
