    Ok this is what I did on the second try.

    1/2 head cabbage
    raspberry vinegarette not too much
    extra virgin olive oil not too much either
    splash celery seed and poppy seed
    cranraisins
    salt and pepper
    cayenne
    2 tbsp real mayonnaise

    This can be added to taste on the table:

    croutons
    cranberry salad with walnuts-if you add you can only add a very small amt (IMO) or you will transform it too much to something entirely different

    Certainly not Mom's cole slaw but cool and entertaining

    1 gallon shredded cabbage, crisped. I use 1/2 green, 1/2 purple (about two 1-lb bags)
    1 quart cold water
    2 c apple cider vinegar
    2 tbsp salt
    1/2 tbsp white pepper
    3-4 tbsp horseradish
    2 c mayonnaise
    3 c vegetable oil
    1 - 1/2 c freshly ground garlic

    Crisp the shredded cabbage by refrigerating it in the water overnight. The next day, drain well and dry. ***DO NOT OMIT THIS STEP
    Mix all the ingredients and let sit, refrigerated to blend the flavors for an hour.

    Note: This is a bulk recipe from my catering database that makes 16-18 servings but there are several online recipe converters that will help you cut this to your desired quantity.

    Like this one too. And for God sakes no sugar, yuck.

    Popeyes is kind of mayo-y but i really like it for some reason.

    A lot of folks hate it and it has to be fresh, but man when it is, it is GOOOOOD slaw.

    We pick up a lot of it coming home for church. We don't eat the chicken but do get the slaw from KFC.

    That's a pretty good basic slaw.

    Going with just the mayo (and no vinegar) yields what we would call "Cabbage Salad".

    It's the vinegar that makes it a "slaw" IMO.

    I make a pretty basic spicy Asian slaw in a casserole dish and top it with dry crushed Ramen noodles at the end. It gives it a nice little crunch. I do a big BBQ for my staff once a year and everybody loves it.

    Man I will jack your slaw and take it home. That stuff is GOOOD. Don't get me wrong, I prefer to make my own but when I can't, it's off to KFC!


    Hollaaa!!!

    Won't debate that but KFC is on my crap list because they closed the one by me.
