I have a bunch of slaw recipes but would have to dig em up. But what I like to do is mix the dressing in a seperate bowl and taste it. I allways add a little fine chopped onion, a squirt of yellow mustard and even though Im'e not a big fan of celery seed maybe just a small pinch it goes a long way. Check out willy crawfords soul food recipe site and go to the archives them southern folks can make some good grub, I have been a subscriber to that site for about four years and still have over two hundred e-mails in my inbox that I haven't even opened yet.

Here's my favorite:

1 head red cabbage 1 1/2 to 2 lbs
1/2 cup cider vinegar
2 tbs granulated sugar
1 tsp celery seed
1 tsp kosher salt
1 tsp fresh ground black pepper
1 1/2 cups mayo
1 tbs Dijon mustard

You can cut back on the quantities if you desire, but I like my slaw with alot of dressing.

Cut the cabbage in half, through the core. Remove the core and slice the cabbage as thin as possible. Mix all the ingredients (except cabbage) in a large bowl. Taste test to see if you need to add anything more. Add the cabbage and toss to coat evenly. Store covered in the fridge overnight, mix well before serving.

This goes exceptionally well with or on pulled pork sammiches!

8 cups finely diced cabbage (about 1 head)
1/4 cup diced carrot
2 tablespoons minced onion
1/3 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper
1/4 cup milk
1/2 cup mayo
1/4 cup buttermilk
1 1/2 tablespoons white vinegar
2 1/2 tablespoons lemon juice


  1. Cabbage and carrots must be finely diced.
  2. (I use fine shredder disc on food processor.) Pour cabbage and carrot mixture into large bowl and stir in minced onions.
  3. Using regular blade on food processor process remaining ingredients until smooth.
  4. Pour over vegetable mixture and mix thoroughly.
  5. Cover bowl and refrigerate several hours or overnight before serving.
This is similar to KFC's coleslaw......
