Fasting a Slab Top to legs

Fasting a slab top to legs.
I have some 2" x 30" x 5' slabs of Pecan & want to make a coffee table that can be taken apart easily.
I am thinking 2 supports / legs made from the same 2" stock. Plan to use 2 stringers between the legs that will provide tension to keep the assembly sturdy.
Will a slot in the underside of the top shaped as shown be sound and sturdy enough? See Sketch.
Sorry about the poor sketch but I hope you get the idea.
And thanks for your feedback.

I don't see any problem with that technique.The more meat you leave on the wood where it slides into the top ,the better.It won't take much of a taper to hold it in place.
