Any good fresh coleslaw recipes?

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
I'm completely tired of store bought premade coleslaw. I'm really looking for a coleslaw recipe that I can make. I'm kinda picky, not really into the finely chopped variety, like KFC's. Thanks in advanced!

Hello Matt.  This is my Grandma's recipe.  You can add grated carrot to sweeten it up but most folks who have tried it say it is good as is.  The onion in it goes really well with Que.  The only family argument is whether to use mayo or Miracle whip. icon_biggrin.gif I use mayo and a LOT of black pepper but try both and you decide.  Hope ya like it.  Sorry for the format.  Keep Smokin!

I had someone over for a BBQ & knew they were allergic to mayo.  I will link to that recipe.  Since I am having 25 over for Independence day I figured I would make it again.  I really liked it & even with some of the reviews saying it was too oily every person that has had it loved it.  Of course I am gonna tweek it a lil will use a lil less oil.  Its best if you make it 3-4 days ahead of time

Here's the slaw sauce that I make. This is a large batch that we make up and store in the fridge and use on all kinds of salads.

 

4 ounces granulated sugar
3/4 cup seasoned rice vinegar
3 cups mayonnaise
1 tablespoon celery seed
1/4 cup capers
1 1/2 tablespoons garlic, finely chopped

 

Used it to make a great shredded broccoli and cauliflower slaw in this thread:

I find keeping it simple with a twist works:

basic mix of mayo, vinegar, sugar, and black pepper (I like a healthy dose of pepper)

then I add a big shot of Beaver brand Sweet Hot mustard

 

Makes a tangy, sweet, slaw with a nice little bite to keep the tounge interested.

 

One thing to do as well - buy the pre-shredded cabbage, if you read on the bag it has had some of the water removed, this prevents the slaw from becoming watery and runny as the cabbage breaks down. You can do it yourself by placing the cabbage in a caulinder over a bowl, sprinkle it with a little bit of salt, and place a weighted bowl on top of it, then put it in the fridge overnight. You will find a bunch of cabbage water in the bottom bowl in the morning. I just buy the bag and save the time... lol.

These all sound good. I will give Disco's a shot as I have been wanting to try a Mustard heavy Cole Slaw...JJ

I like JIRodriguez idea.. simple.. basic .. easy to remember. Alot of cracked peppers... and I gotta try the mustard kick.

Now That said, the last slaw I made was out of all red cabbage(all I could find on my way to a campout)... and it just "looked" bad the following day.. but.. still good... just really not use to eating something that red\puple color everyday.. :l

Another good way to spice up slaw sauce is to add horseradish or wasabi. Gives a great kick. Trader joes has a wasabi mayo that makes a great substitute for the regular mayo.

I also enjoy cooking coleslaw, and my recipe is pretty much simple: I take a half of green cabbage and mayonaise, a quarter of an onion and add some grated carrot, as I enjoy when this dish is sweet. Then, you may add some salt and pepper, as you wish. As you see, the ingredients are quite simple, and you can get these in any local store, so wish you good luck, enjoy cooking and tasting your homemade dish!
