In an attempt to help busy weekend (and other) cooks, I've decided to start a section of my blog entitled, Food Processor Fridays, where I will post quick and easy recipes with step-by-step instructions and photos utilizing the food processor.
First up, creamy coleslaw. This recipe came together in ten minutes, I promise you. And I think I could have done it in five if I could have located my vegetable peeler faster. (making mental note: Clean out the utensil drawer.)
Creamy Coleslaw (adapted from my Cuisinart recipe booklet)
1/3 cup loosely packed parsley leaves
1/2 sweet onion, cut in half again
1 cup reduced-fat mayonnaise
1 Tbsp white vinegar
1 Tbsp sugar (I used Splenda)
1/2 tsp celery salt
1/2 tsp freshly ground pepper
1 large carrot, peeled (this is where I fell behind in time)
1 1/2 pounds cabbage (this was a small head for me)
Add onion and process until minced.
Add mayo, vinegar, sugar, celery salt, and pepper. Process 5 seconds to combine. Remove metal blade.
Cut carrot in half crosswise. Core cabbage and cute it into wedges. Insert shredding disc and shred carrots, using firm pressure.
