When I asked my husband what he wanted me to make him for his birthday dinner, his response was, "Brats". Yummy, delicious, Beer Brats.
I then was trying to think of what I could top these Brats with, and with some extra cabbage in the fridge, I thought it would be neat to make a vinegar-based slaw to go on top.
So I took to the internet, let my fingers mosie on over to Foodnetwork.com, and typed in "Coleslaw Dressing". I looked at a couple different recipes, and finally decided that the Neely's Spicy-Sweet Slaw would accompany our Brats well. Although not vinegar based, I thought the combination of Mustard with everything would go perfectly with Brats; I mean, come on, Brats & Mustard....Perfect combination.
With the slaw, I didn't have enough Yellow Mustard, so I used Brown Mustard instead. James also asked to nix the Cayenne Pepper. In the end, I liked it. It turned out to be a sweet slaw with a little twang.
Also, I must say, my grilled potatoes......fantastic. I pre-baked them in the microwave, splashed them in EVOO & salt and pepper, and then stuck them on the grill. So good.
