Nigella's Sandwich Slaw

This slaw recipe came from the book, Nigella Express. I checked the book out of the library recently and thought I would get a couple good recipes out of it...and I did. I found this recipe and thought it would be a good way to use up the remaining cabbage from fish tacos.

1 apple, chopped into strips
1 carrot, cut into matchsticks
2 c finely sliced cabbage
For the slaw I just used the cabbage mix from Sendik's instead of the ingredients listed above.

2 T mayonnaise
1 T mango chutney
1 T lemon juice
1/2 t caraway seeds
pinch of salt

It's good. We served it with hot ham and rolls, a Milwaukee Sunday thing. I don't really get the whole hot ham and rolls thing but it's a definitely a Milwaukee staple. For example, at work on a Monday morning someone may ask what you did over the weekend. The typical response might be, "Watched the Badger game on Saturday, went skiing, watched the Packers, and got hot ham and rolls on Sunday". There are signs advertising this at many venues, so it really could be a project to check out which place has the best hot ham and rolls (future blog for us?). At our Sendik's on a Sunday after church services let out the butcher will be putting packages of hot ham on the counter and the packages of rolls (free with the purchase of the hot ham). Sendik's is a good place to get the hot ham because the rolls are from Sciortino's Bakery, a Milwaukee landmark. I think that if you're going to do the traditional Milwaukee Sunday meal....those are the rolls to have.

I guess the Wisconsin resident handbook should include a chapter on hot ham and rolls. Maybe that could be in the book right after the chapter explaining that a "bubbler" is a drinking fountain?

  1. I hadn't read this a Milwaukee native, I didn't encounter hot ham and rolls until I entered the work force after graduating from is definitely a Milwaukee staple. By the way, a bubbler is a drinking fountain and I will always call it that!!!!!
