Happy St. Patrick's Day!
A little "non Irish," but green, side dish.
Growing up in an Irish household, every March 17, my mom made the traditional Irish meal of corned beef, cabbage, rhutabagas, and pototoes. I would wrinkle my nose and turn my head to all of it. I still don't care for the flavor of corned beef, but I do like all the veggies included in the "traditional" boiled dinner. But, since Scott is out of town, I probably won't go through the effort of making a traditional meal this St. Patrick's Day.
Instead, I leave you with a little green in a non-traditional way. This is what I'm having with my turkey sandwich for lunch today. It is Anna's wasabi coleslaw. Oh.My.Gosh. If you like wasabi, this is the best coleslaw you will ever eat. I promise. This time, I used broccoli slaw mix, rather than cabbage for a little more green, and a little more nutrition. Either way, this stuff is like crack- very addictive!
