Is a slaw a salad?

Ok, ok, I know, the pictures totally stink this week. one of those people that doesn't buy something wit My camera has finally met it's maker! I have to admit I'm pretty stoked...I am one of those people that doesn't buy things unless it is a complete necessity. And it's my birthday next week so i can ask for it! I would love suggestions as to what kind of camera to get.
Anyway, here is the slaw recipe as promised. It has home made mayonnaise in the recipe that makes it super duper yummy...you must try this slaw. It's totally fresh and compliments so many meals. If you don't love slaw, try it anyway!
TROPICAL SLAW

2 cups Napa cabbage
2 cups green cabbage
2 cups red cabbage
1 cup grated carrots
1 cup grated jicima
1 cup oranges, segmented
1 cup mango, cubed
1 cup pineapple
¼ cup coconut
1 egg
1/3 tsp. dry mustard
½ tsp. kosher salt (coarse)
2 T lime juice
2 Tablespoons honey
1 c vegetable oil
1 tablespoon poppy seeds

Combine the vegetables and fruits in a large bowl.
Blend well in food processor the eggs, mustard, salt, lime juice and honey. Add the oil in a drizzle to the blending mixture. As the mixture thickens allow the oil to flow in a steady slow stream. This is called emulsifying. Mixture should be thick and not oily.
Mix the sweet mayonnaise with the cabbage mixture and sprinkle with poppyseeds. Chill well.

Slaw definitely a salad in my book. What kind of camera are you getting? I have canon powershot. I need to learn more about taking food pics though.

Hi Sherry,
You have a cute blog. I love the finger sandwiches! I will be trying them soon. The crackers and bacon look interesting as well. I have no idea as to what camera I will be getting. I hope to get a little advice. I like the powershot. I take stinky pics...I blame it on the camera! Your pictures are good.
