In the following recipe, you’ll see that we add a bit of barbecue sauce to the slaw along with olive oil mayonnaise and Creole mustard. We prefer to dress our slaw lightly in order to keep the focus on the vegetables and bring out their natural flavor and crunchy texture.
On to dessert: we finally tried out a s’mores bar! It’s been in the back of our heads to attempt this for a while now. Even the most basic s’more made with graham crackers and milk chocolate is good at the very, very least, but why not switch a few of the expected ingredients out for some more adventurous flavors to create an unforgettable dessert?
Just imagine a toasted marshmallow and dark chocolate that’s studded with candied ginger between two thin gingersnaps -- we all thought these were amazing. Your guests could also mix it up by sandwiching a marshmallow and white chocolate between two lightly sweet almond and dried fruit cookies. You may want to spring for a bag of vegan marshmallows, which are available at health food stores and online, like we did. This way, everyone can participate; generally, other marshmallows include gelatin, which strict vegetarians and vegans choose not to eat.
