when I make coleslaw I cut the cabbage then shred some turnips n rutabaga, little small diced onion n same with peppers n lotsa carrots and then spray some lemon juice over to keep color[like I do with potato n sweet potato]. and I usually make enough to fill little over half a 5 qrt pail, It lasts way longer in fridge and just add mayo salt n pepper and little cider vinegar to your serving. anybody else have some other additions?? course my chickens get the cabbage cores

I like a little celery in my coleslaw.
In fact pinch or two of shelery sheed is phantashtic! [Sean Connery voice]
Fennel root an Jicama is also good.

Haven't had rutabaga in years. But the rest I've put in slaw. Along with chunks of bacon. Also finely cut radishes. Quite often it will just have vinegar and oil with salt and pepper.

Just got back from the store. Cabbage is $1.19/lb. Gaak! It is usually $.75 but often $.59. I don't get it. I bought a package of pre-shredded slaw mix instead.

Daikon Radish and Celeriac (Celery Root), are tasty additions. I'm a Kimchi fan so Napa Cabbage is a fav for Coleslaw...JJ

I've never done this but now im wondering what it would be like to replace some or all of the carrots with parsnips. Ive always liked parsnips but usually cooked. Maybe could shred then blanch before adding them to the mix

If you have never tried Jicama, it's an awesome root crop...

We love it and use it for many things. Last use was this refreshing salad. One softball sized jicama cut into matchsticks, about 8 oz. of sliced radishes, one sliced red pepper and some minced fresh cilantro to taste. For the dressing 1/2 cup of avocado oil, 4 tbs white wine vinegar, zest of 2 small limes, 2 tsp chili powder, 1 tsp coriander 1 tsp pink salt. Toss and let it sit for an hour or so for flavors to marry.
