Today is the eighth day of the Lenten Season. Time to really get creative and think outside my typical box. As I put together my meal planner, I asked Hubby if he liked Coleslaw. I had noticed that he generally cringed away from slaw that came as a side in some restaurants. He said sure, if it’s done right he would eat it. What about Tartar Sauce Coleslaw on a Cod Fish Sandwich? He gave me a strange look, thought for a moment and agreed he would be willing to give it a try. So the adventure began.
I am not a fan of Coleslaw, but that’s because I’m not generally a fan of anything that relies heavily on Cabbage. I think that goes way back to when I was expecting my son. If anyone within a mile radius was cooking anything with cabbage, it made me feel queasy. The worst was sauerkraut. We were living on the second floor of an apartment building at the time, and I could smell it if anyone in the building even thought about sauerkraut. To this day, I cannot smell sauerkraut without feeling ill. Interestingly enough, my son loves the stuff.
Yeah, isn’t that a lovely story just before sharing a recipe? Hey, what can I say except I feel comfortable enough to share . . .
Now that you know I’m not a fan of Cabbage, I’ve got to tell you this Tartar Sauce Coleslaw is a great way to top off a beautiful Cod Fish Sandwich. Hope you give it a try.
