shamelessly ripped off
I mean, adapted, this recipe
for Zucchini Slaw
from Lisa of Homesick Texan blogdom.
1 medium zucchini
some red onion
1 small carrot
some green pepper
1 garlic clove
handful of parsley
I love this new julienner which Mr. Hawthorne
found on our travels in Red Lodge, Montana.
I julienned the zucchini and the carrot
and chopped the onion and pepper.
Add in minced garlic.
And minced jalapeno.
And chopped parsley.
For the dressing,
about 1/4 cup mayonnaise,
1 heaping teaspoon yellow mustard,
and a good sprinkling of hot paprika.
Toss to coat.
Taste test and season with salt and pepper.
I served this crisp salad base with Mr. Hawthorne's meatloaf.
It was a welcome complement to the rich meat
and a nice diversion from cabbage.
Plus it's an excellent way to use up
the bounty of your garden.
