Last night’s dinner, fish and some deviled crab for the bride and I, had the consistent side dish, cole slaw. I was tagged as the DDM – designated dressing maker. So, I plied my hand to the task, mixing the elixir of apple cider vinegar, mayonnaise and sugar. The same way I was taught by my father, by his mother, by her mother. Four generations, and I had that definite sense last night, of history, as I mixed the blend. It’s so simple, but never the same. It’s an old time recipe – mix to taste, depending on taste and mood. I’m also convinced that something else could be added to honor the flavor, to enhance, even invigorate anew the tradition. Nevertheless, it is a wonderful and fitting dressing for the noble and delicious slaw.
Solo Deo Gloria,
