Let's hear your recipe. I need some neat ideas. Thanks.
Cole slaw looks like salad that someone's already chewed on. Not sure of that's a recipe you'd be interested in so sorry about that.
A Good spot for it, is in the garbage.
Yeah I don't like that stuff.
This is the one I normally use, I let it to set up in the fridge for a couple hours before serving.
Also I add celery seed, because they are awesome imo.
I love a good cole slaw so I'll chime in something worthy of note.. Obviously nobody has the time nowadays to cut up their own cabbage and stuff so get one of those pre-sliced bags but in addition they also have a broccoli slaw mixture. I would go 1 part broccoli slaw to 2 parts regular cabbage style slaw. Then of course you use your favorite mayo, mustard, honey, and as much cayenne as you can handle (Maybe start with 1 teaspoon,) and the final ingredient is fresh lemon juice.
If you need me to be more specific on the mixtures let me know. I don't use precise measurements, I mix everything according to taste samples at various intervals...
If I don't feel like making a homemade slaw sauce then I go with Hidden Valley and then I add the cayenne and lemon juice to tweak it...
I grew up on my mom's slaw so that is what I emulate...
I do NOT like sweet slaw...
Bag of pre-cut slaw
Mayo... to taste. Mix it where it looks dry as it will get soggy if you don't. You can add more mayo later if need be.
Balsamic Vinegar to taste. This is the secret.
Salt and Pepper to taste.
It's a South Carolina style slaw and everyone I make it for asks for the recipe...
If you have never tried a vinegar slaw, try this one... you won't be sorry...
I forgot to mention a little bit of black pepper to..
I looove sweet slaw. Here is mine.
16 oz bag coleslaw mix
1 sm onion-chopped fine
2/3 c miracle whip dressing
3 Tbsp vegetable oil
1/2 c sugar
1 Tbsp vinegar
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 -1/2 tsp celery seed
1. I run the coleslaw mix through my food processor to make it more fine.
2. Combine coleslaw mix and onion in a large bowl.
3. Whisk together miracle whip, vegetable oil, sugar, vinegar, salt and celery seed in a medium size bowl.
4. Pour dressing mix over coleslaw and toss to coat. Chill until ready to serve *this taste best if chilled an hour or longer*
Anyone else expect this to be a Beasley thread?
Shredded Broccoli Slaw + Sliced Almonds + Dried Cranberries + Poppyseed Dressing.
Man, some good stuff some of which I've never tried.
I'm going to do a basic one as well as eventually get around to the poppy seed and almond ones.
I cut my own. It only takes a few minutes. We used some Sushi vinegar this last time but I used too much mayo for her. Some Splenda. She wants to put salt in it and soak 'to make it soft'. I like mine crunchy so first to get there gets to throw ingredients in.
I might try some flax seed but definitely the celery seed. Cranberries instead of carrot. And a few cut up nuts to make it special.
I think the frig is a must. Anyone know what that does other than change the temp?
My mom got me used to using salt, pepper, red wine vinegar and oil. I've since added seasoning salt & celery salt. I dont care for the thick mayo based stuff much.
Have to try the balsamic or raspberry as well as just some oil instead of much mayo as she doesn't like it as much.
Thanks for all the ideas.
This. The best cole claw I've ever had was with oil and vinegar and big spicy peppers on the side.
Another slacker! :
