Spicy Coleslaw a Hit

Spicy SlawToday on the Sonrise Morning Show I chatted with Matt Swaim about the humble cabbage and how its roots trace back to several thousand years before Christ was born!

The cabbage of Bible times in the Mediterranean was a wilder type, more loose leaf type, it did not head up hard and large like the cabbage of today, since the climate there was warmer and common cabbage is a cool weather crop.

I shared this recipe which students prepared during the annual mentoring dinner at Diamond Oaks Career School which the Culinary students prepared with help from professionals. Sponsored through the American Culinary Federation of Greater Cincinnati this is their 11th year having the students prepare dinner, this year, for 120 people. Executive Kroger Chef Debbie Goulding headed up the project with Chef Instructor Molly Maundrel. These 2 ladies are dynamos!


 Now if you don’t like the heat, go to taste on the Seranos. You can also use Jalapeños, or even just a shake of ground red pepper.  Or no pepper at all!!

YIELD: 12-15 servings



1 large head       Cabbage, thinly shredded
