I have been doing a lot of Christmas cooking lately, so I have had very little time to blog about cooking. Earlier this week we had sausages and latkes for dinner. Coleslaw goes well with this meal, but I did not have enough of any one cabbage to make it.

I made Jamaican Jerk Chicken on Sunday and I have half a breast leftover. Checking out the Jamaican cook book, that Jan brought me back from England, I saw that it had a recipe for Caribbean coleslaw. If I put the chicken together with the coleslaw I could come up with the Jamaican equivalent of a Chinese Chicken salad. Of course, I view a cookbook recipe as a source of ideas and insparation, not a list of ingredients, so my salad is only a nod at the original recipe.
This is a weekday meal, so I usually do not go to all the effort that I put into my Sunday feasts. However, that does not mean that it should be bad for your or not taste good. “Quick” does not necessarily mean “bad.”
For the most part I try to make may own dressing for salads. However, I have not been able to replicate the flavor of Hidden Vally Ranch Coleslaw dressing. It simply tastes “right.”
