Wasabi Coleslaw

This is my friend Maureen’s favorite recipe.  It’s a spin-off of the old Copy Cat KFC with a punch of wasabi.  I’m filing it here for safekeeping even though it has nothing to do with cookies.

I originally made it with a bunch of diet ingredients and it was surprisingly delicious.  But you can always sub real mayo and regular sugar.  Feel free to improvise, because this is just the base.

    Anna,Thanks for posting the coleslaw recipe. I think we must have very similar tastes in food and wine. I laughed because every time I make coleslaw, I put it in a wrap with turkey! I had an Argentinian white last night that was a blend of Chenin Blanc and Chardonnay. Very good, and inexpensive, an added plus!

    So do you use Boarshead brand turkey? I do.BTW. I’m still looking for that Bonnie Dune Le Cigare wine you mentioned. Hopefully, I’ll find it before the summer ends.
