Charleston Receipts Hot Slaw #SouthernSaturdays

Wilted cabbage slaw with piquant dressing.
Charleston Receipts Hot Slaw

For Southern Saturdays this week I am demonstrating a recipe from the classic community cookbook Charleston Receipts, by the Junior League of Charleston.

It is a variation of a type of hot slaw that I have made before, although my version was more Amish.

Essentially the shredded cabbage is quickly wilted in a pan and treated with the sweet-sour dressing.

This is a very good version, although not as piquant as the type I am  used to. For an inexpensive side dish, however, it rocks. So check out the book if you are interested.
