2 T. brown sugar
2 T. ground cumin

I store any leftover rub that I have in a cute little specially marked spice jar in my spice cabinet.
Shamefully Easy and Delicious Coleslaw.
Just so you know, I grew up HATING coleslaw. Really hating it. My mother would cut up wedges of cabbage for me, and I would eat that, in lieu of eating coleslaw, but I hated the dressing that was on the coleslaw. I’m still not a fan of your average coleslaw.
And it’s so easy it’s almost criminal.
And cabbage is so GOOD for you! Cruciferous vegetable that it is, and all.
And, it’s the perfect side dish to make for a cookout, when you either (a) don’t feel like cooking but are supposed to take a side dish to a party you’re attending, or (b) you’re hosting the party, and you’re already expending enough of your creative energy on other dishes, but want a fast, easy, and delicious side dish to add to your menu. This goes great with hamburgers, hot dogs, ribs, pork shoulder, or most anything else that you might happen to be cooking on the grill.
1 bag of already shredded coleslaw mix (mine had cabbage, red cabbage and carrots)
1 small bottle of a vinaigrette-type dressing (Newman’s Own is a nice one, or Newman’s Own Caesar, but whatever you have on hand – or – even better- make your own vinaigrette – my recipe follows) I don’t use the whole bottle – I think in the past I’ve used about 3/4 of a bottle. Pour on the dressing gradually and mix it till it suits your taste. You can always add more vinaigrette, but you can’t take it off once it’s on there.)
1/2 package of crumbled feta cheese (so that would be about 2 oz or 1/2 c.)
1/2 c. dry roasted sunflower seeds
Mix and devour.
And it takes two seconds to make. How cool is that?
