Store-bought stuff for a cookout?

    I'm one of those people who likes to bring something homemade whenever I go to a cookout or the like. However, I was just invited to one right after work today, which mandates I grab something from the store. I don't want to do just cookies or a lame dessert -- would rather have something that can be enjoyed with the main fare. I'm told there will be burgers, dogs, pasta salad. Suggestions for what I can bring?

    Justin Wilson's Cole Slaw

    A recipe for Justin Wilson's Cole Slaw. Follow the simple recipe instructions for Justin Wilson's Cole Slaw shared by other home cooking experts.

    5 Tbs. Mayonnaise, (heaping)

    1 Tsp. Louisiana hot sauce

    2 Tbs. Yellow mustard (heaping)

    2 Tbs. Ketchup

    2 Tbs. Olive oil

    1 Tbs. Wine vinegar

    1 Tsp. Garlic salt

    1 Tbs. Lea and Perrins

    1 Juice of mediums size lemon

    3 Tsp. Salt (to taste)

    4 Bell peppers, sliced (Eliminate if desired)

    2 Onions, medium, shredded (Eliminate if desired or use red onion, slivered)

    1 Large cabbage, shredded (A one pound bag of cole slaw works better)

    Put mayonnaise and mustard in a bowl large enough to hold complete mixture, but shaped so that the mixture can be beaten with a fork. Beat mayonnaise and mustard until combined. Add olive oil slowly, beating all the time. Beat until mixture has returned to the thickness of original mayonnaise. Add Louisiana hot sauce, continuing to beat. Add ketchup and keep beating. Add salt and garlic salt, beating all the time. Add wine vinegar (this will thin the sauce down). Beat this thoroughly, adding the lemon juice as you do so. Taste for salt and pepper. Place shredded cabbage, peppers, and onions in a large salad bowl. pour sauce over and toss well. This should be done about an hour before serving. Tastes even better the next day.

    Cole slaw more complex than Thanksgiving dinner. Who knew?

    Here's my alternative recipe:

    Shredded cabbage
    Marzetti's slaw dressing

    Directions: Mix.

    I remember as a freshman we had a potluck lunch on campus at the end of the year for a class. Being the lame 18 yr. old I decided to bring a bucket of the Colonel's. Well it was emptied first. Just sayin'.

    Yeah, I went to a party not long ago where everyone brought something homemade except for one single guy who brought a tray of crackers, cheese and pepperoni ... and those got polished off in no time.

    I just took some pickles yesterday. Eh.
