Happy Birthday America!

Happy 4th of July Susitna Cafe’ friends!  We’re celebrating at our neighborhood annual parade and cookout, and we’re sooo glad you’ve joined us!

Oh look!  The sidewalks are all decorated with flags today…

The neighbors have pulled-out their lawn chairs…

And the parade has begun…

Isn’t this exciting?  It looks like there are some friendly firemen leading the parade!

Oh, and here come some bicyclists…

Wow!  Some folks are dressed-up for the occasion…they’re wearing good ‘ol red, white and blue…

Looks like some folks are enjoying their morning walk in the parade today…

While others are enjoying their wagons…

and wheels…

Look!  Family pets are in the parade too!

Ahhw…he’s sooo “Handsome”!

Now that the parade is over, let’s go to the neighborhood clubhouse.  Looks like the picnic has started!

Isn’t it nice here?  There’s face painting for the kids…

Swimming…

“Just Hanging”…

and, of course, hot dogs!

Well, let’s celebrate and grab a hot dog and some cole slaw…Happy Birthday America!!!

Susitna Cafe’ Cole Slaw with Feta

Ingredients*

4 cups cabbage, shredded

2 carrots, shredded

2 green onions (scallions), chopped

1/2 cup feta cheese (I use feta with mediterranean herbs, but plain feta is delicious too)

1/3 cup cider vinegar

1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil

2 Tablespoons agave syrup

fresh ground pepper, to taste

*I recommended using organic ingredients whenever possible.

Combine all ingredients in a large mixing bowl.  Stir to incorporate the dressing and feta throughout the slaw.

Chill for several hours (overnight is even better).  This is a delicious alternative to cole slaw with mayonnaise!

Cook’s Note:   Note that the outer (greener) leaves on a cabbage head marinates faster and imparts a milder cabbage flavor to your slaw.  The shredded leaves from the hard interior section of the cabbage head takes longer to marinate and imparts a stronger flavor to your slaw.  You may wish to use a combination of both outer and inner leaves to vary the texture and flavor of this savory salad.  As for your hot dogs and/or sausages…remember to soak them in water for a couple of hours (or even overnight) prior to grilling.  Soaking will ensure that you’ll enjoy the plumpest and juiciest hot dogs at your summer grilling parties.  You know, sometimes it’s just the little things that you do that make a big tasty difference 😮
