Ribs, Beans, and Coleslaw
Coleslaw is one of my favorite summer sides.
1/2 head finely chopped cabbage (the bags of shredded cabbage work every well too, and often contain carrots which add some nice color)
1/2 small onion-finely chopped
1/3 cup mayo or salad dressing ( I use Miracle Whip Light)
1/3 cup sour cream
1/2 teaspoon seasoned salt
2 tablespoons sugar
1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
Mix all ingredients and refrigerate until serving. Best served shortly after preparation.
Coleslaw really is a last minute side. It gets runny quickly. I honestly wouldn't make it much more than an hour before serving and usually make it right before the meal.
If coleslaw is an easy side, these beans are a complete no-brainer. Open a can of Bush's Grillin Beans Bourbon and Brown Sugar variety and stick them on the grill. These beans are great in a sauce pan on the stove but even better on the grill. I love my little bean pot.
Oh, and some ribs were grilled. They were pretty fabulous too. :)
