Summer Slaw

Go figure.  I just made the best slaw I've ever made in my life and it's the dead of winter.  I swear I was ready to put on my swimming suit and look for a party.  It's the ginger that makes it taste like summer.  And, forgive me, I don't have the exact measurements tied down.  I kind of made it as I went along.  I made some - tasted it- loved it and kept going.  Maybe you could do the same thing.

Get a package of ready cut cabbage and carrots.  One package.

Grate just a minuscule amount of ginger on a microplane into a big bowl.  Be careful that you don't use too much or it will overpower the slaw. Then grate a about 1/8 a  peeled apple on the same microplane.  This clears the ginger out of the blades.  Add the juice of 1/4 a lemon.  Add about 1 Tablespoon of sugar. Mix all of this together.  Then add the slaw cabbage and mix well.  Taste.  Then start over with mixing another batch of the ginger, apple, lemon and sugar in a cup and add that to the slaw to taste.  It will probably take it all.

It's the ginger.  I don't know a slaw recipe in the world that has ginger in it.  And I love it.  No mayo.  Very fresh.  Don't hold it over too long.  It should make you feel like you just stepped out of the garden and are ready to go swimming.  Even in winter.
