    Hey guys, I'm looking for a new 'sweet & sour cole slaw' recipe.  I have tried the ones previously listed on the site....they have been on here awhile I think?  Just hoping someone has a killer recipe they want to share.  I like mine really strong!  The kind that makes you cough right before you slide a spoonful in your mouth...lol

    I'm willing try try anything......thanks in advance for your help

    Here is one we use all the time - we just buy the bagged pre chopped slaw but we love this one because it is not the typical sweet slaw. We cut the sugar in half

    Creamy Cole Slaw

    Recipe courtesy Bobby Flay

    Prep Time:10 minInactive Prep Time:--Cook Time:--Level:EasyServes:8 servings



    • 1 head green cabbage, finely shredded
    • 2 large carrots, finely shredded
    • 3/4 cup best-quality mayonnaise
    • 2 tablespoons sour cream
    • 2 tablespoons grated Spanish onion
    • 2 tablespoons sugar, or to taste
    • 2 tablespoons white vinegar
    • 1 tablespoon dry mustard
    • 2 teaspoons celery salt
    • Salt and freshly ground pepper


    Combine the shredded cabbage and carrots in a large bowl. Whisk together the mayonnaise, sour cream, onion, sugar, vinegar, mustard, celery salt, salt, and pepper in a medium bowl, and then add to the cabbage mixture. Mix well to combine and taste for seasoning; add more salt, pepper, or sugar if desired.

    I just made one similar to Scar's, but used 1/4 cup seasoned rice vinegar instead of white, and added the zest and juice of a small lime, half a clove minced garlic, and added about 1 heaping tsp horseradish sauce (not straight horseradish!), also some chachere's and old bay.  Added a julienned red bell pepper, about 1/2 cup chopped fresh basil (cilantro is awesome too), would've put in a small jalapeno but I didn't have one.  It went over well @ the party it went to.  I love slaw and all its variations - such a versatile dish! Cheers!
