Almost Marzetti's Slaw Dressing
15 mins (prep 15)
7 ingredients
2.5 servings
Did you ever just start cooking without really having a clue where you were going to end up? My kids have gotten used to it by now. "Mom, what's for dinner?" "I don't know, it's not DONE yet. Let's wait and see what it turns out to be, okay?" Sometimes I let them name it. I really had absolutely NO idea how this would taste, but sometimes I come up with pretty decent stuff that way. Over the Memorial Day weekend, I thought I'd just whip up some coleslaw to go with my Bobbie-Q Beef (recipe for that may follow...eventually) But instead of reaching for a coleslaw recipe in a cookbook, I whipped out my handy-dandy Palm Pilot (how did I EVER get along without it?) and looked up the recipe for "Amish Macaroni Salad." I took that as my leaping-off point. First, I changed it from Miracle Whip to mayonnaise, then reduced the sugar. Also I added the celery salt, because, well, if it's good enough for a Chicago Style Hot Dog, it's good enough for me. Turned out that it tasted almost-but-not-quite exactly like Marzetti's Brand Slaw Dressing which comes in a glass jar from Your Grocer's Refrigerator Case. Which I just happen to like, so it was a good thing. Hope you give this a try.
