Kitchen Confessions: Crunchy Southern Slaw

I mentioned yesterday that Jen and her family came over for dinner on Friday night.  I wanted to plan a fun and low-key evening so that we could all just enjoy, relax and unwind from the week.  Because of this I wanted to make sure everything I was cooking or making could be done ahead of time, except for the Mr. grilling our burgers.  I flipped through my cookbook and decided that I hadn't made one of my favorite side dishes in a while.

To me, slaw is just something that screams southern.  It reminds me of local BBQ restaurants and Sunday Suppers at my grandparents.  While I don't always care for the traditional southern slaw I do love the other varieties I've had over the years. Some of my favorites were Blue Cheese Slaw from a restaurant we used to frequent when we had our lake house and Granny Smith Apple Slaw that I recently had on our trip to Key West. Delish!!!

One other favorite that I've actually made myself is a recipe I got from my mother in law years ago.  The secret ingredient is Ramen noodles.  Crazy, right?  I promise it's good though.
