Mustard is my favorite condiment. Bill and I had lunch at Red Robin yesterday, where he watched me smear my burger with mustard. He told me that’s as bad as putting ketchup on a hot dog, which I would never do.
Grandpa always spread his bread with mustard, so I learned about mustard at an early age. But then, I always loved Miracle Whip spread on white bread for an after school snack too…
Speaking of Red Robin ~ have you been there lately and noticed a $1.99 charge on your bill for Entertainment Tax? Seriously now!
Anyway, if you like mustard, here’s your slaw ~ that’s the secret ingredient with this fantastic slaw.
Mellow yellow mustard gives the slaw just enough bite; without overpowering the slaw, like a pungent spicy hot mustard.
Adding the combination of mayo, a little sugar, half-and-half, celery seed, and a splash of vinegar makes the dressing creamy, sweet and tangy, having a very balanced flavor.
Purchase a bag of shredded cabbage mixture to eliminate your doing the doing the shredding and/or to save time.
This slaw is perfect with burgers, fish sandwiches or on pulled pork sandwiches.
You will be hooked from the first bite, and hopefully your mustard naysayers will too!
This is pretty tasty slaw!

“I know the look of an apple that is roasting and sizzling on the hearth on a winter's evening, and I know the comfort that comes of eating it hot, along with some sugar and a drench of cream... I know how the nuts taken in conjunction with winter apples, cider, and doughnuts, make old people's tales and old jokes sound fresh and crisp and enchanting.”
― Mark Twain
