Summer time is here and it’s time for picnics, barbecues, and other occasions that center around eating. One of America’s favorite potluck side dishes is classic cole slaw, but the traditional dish is made with
kryptonite mayonnaise (obviously, I’m not a fan).
I was never a fan of cole slaw growing up (probably due to the copious amounts of mayo), but when I worked at Zoes Kitchen years ago, I was introduced to the vinegar-based Greek variation. I fell in love. There is something delightful about the combination of the tangy, smoky, herby flavors that make up this concoction. I couldn’t get enough of it while I was working at Zoes – I would take home the extra pints and quarts at the end of the day to snack on later at home. My coworkers probably thought I was a constipated, cabbage-obsessed weirdo. I didn’t care.
