Funtastic Friday 179 and Favorite Family Recipes Blog Hop

Funtastic-Friday-Poster 600


Welcome to what I expect will be another Funtastic week of posts from our blogger friends. 

Before we get started , I have a Coastal Slaw recipe that I shared the  Favorite Family Recipes Blog Hop . I was seriously impressed with the BBQ Macaroni Salad.

I've partnered with my blogging friends on a recipe blog hop. 
You'll find a collection of family favorites and new family favorites linked below and we invite you to add one of your favorite recipes too. We'll be pinning and posting all over the internet so it's a great time to join us.

Many thanks to this group  of friends who put this together and always make for a fantastic event.

I thought I'd share my favorite recipe for Slaw. I call it Coastal Slaw ....of course. 

This recipe originated because I had purchased a bottle of Coconut White Balsamic Vinegar at an olive oil specialty store and was trying to find a way to create new recipes with this new flavor. 

It has since become one of my favorite vinegars. I use it often  with organic flake coconut to flavor many things, including salads.

Coastal Slaw 
1/2 head of cabbage shredded
5 carrots shredded
4 scallions chopped 
1 cup mayo
1 tbl coconut white balsamic vinegar (I bought mine at the Crushed Olive in Babylon Village)
1/4 Cup unsweetened shredded coconut +a pinch for the garnish
Toss all the veggies with the cup of mayo, add vinegar, toss, add coconut , toss, a pinch of sea salt and pepper. Refrigerate until cool.
To serve toss , plate and garnish with the shredded coconut .
Serve inside fish tacos, along with Pulled Pork or BBQ. Certainly with coconut shrimp.

Enjoy .
