The BEST cole slaw

  1. Well the BEST in my not so humble opinion [​IMG]

    Making my World Famous (and by World I mean anyone close enough to taste it) and figured I would share my recipe.  Took me quite a while to get it just the way I like it.

    2lbs of Cabbage (shredded)

    1 1/4 C of Apple Cider vinegar

    1 C Sugar

    1 C Grated Carrot

    4 green onions (thinly sliced)

    1/4 C Mayonaise

    1 tsp (or more) Celery Seed

    Salt and pepper to taste

    Place cabbage and carrots in a large bowl. Mix vinegar and sugar until sugar is dissolved.  Pour over cabbage and let stand 30 minutes.  Stir cabbage and let stand another 15 minutes. 

    Drain the cabbage and add green onion, celery seed, salt, pepper and mayonnaise.  Toss to coat evenly.  Place in fridge for a couple hours and enjoy!!!

    Sounds pretty good to me!! Will keep this recipe to try at the next BBQ party. Thank you sir!
  3. Most welcome.  It's the right balance of vinegar and sweetness with just a touch of Mayo for creaminess.  Let me know if you like it.

    Looks good! Just to rile things up, consider adding some cracked caraway seed.

    Also, do you ever make flavored vinegars, like with herbs or garlic? This could be a recipe to slip some of that into, in place of the plain cider vinegar.

  5. I haven't made any flavored vinegars......ooops one time I made a Blackberry Vinegar for a Chicken recipe I did.  I will certainly look into that and the Caraway seeds. 

    Me personally think that Celery seed was MADE for cole slaw.  Cole slaw without just doesn't taste right to me.

    Depending on who you're serving, caraway seeds stuck between teeth might be a problem.

    Gonna try it. Thanks
  11. I always make this recipe without the onions.  I like onions, but never put them in before.

    This is my favorite mayo based slaw.

    Looks good will keep it and give it a try!
  14. PadronMan - Very nice !

    Absolutely Yes on the celery seed, and, personally, I agree on the sugar.

    The recipe is very close to what we do, cept add more Mayo.                 Marc

    I am looking forward to trying this, this sounds like a recipie I miss terribly from a local Bar B Q place closed its doors and the slaw was out of this world. Had a sweet and sour tang to it then just melted into your taste buds.... Thank you for sharing this....RD
