Cole Slaw

This is a favorite side dish with many of my recipes. We like ours a little on the sweet side with a special ingredient you will learn about shortly. This is great eaten alone with some crackers too. This is What's Cookin on Beaty's Creek.


1 head of cabbage-shredded and chopped really thin
1 T salt
2 T garlic powder
3/4 cup white sugar
3 cups mayo
1/2 cup milk

Mix mayo, salt, garlic powder, sugar, and milk together until mixed very well (or until sugar is disolved). Now pour this mixture over cabbage and stir until all of the cabbage is coated. Place in fridge for a couple of hours or overnight.

5 Cup Salad

This is one my husband's favorites. It is good the next day also. I make my salads the night before Easter or Thanksgiving. The fridge gets crowded but it makes life easier on the big day. I finally got around to adding a picture to the post. Enjoy...

3 cans Fruit Cocktail-drained
2 large cans of Mandarin Oranges-drained
1/2 bag small marshmallows
1 cup coconut
2 tubs cool whip

Place first four ingredients in a bowl and mix well, add cool whip and fold gently. Cover tightly with plastic wrap and put in fridge. How easy is that???
