Default coleslaw

made the slaw with a head of red and a head of regular cabbage and doubled
the recipe since it called for just one head.

I used the Cuisinart to shred the cabbage to rice size bits and salted
rinsed and drained it and shredded a few baby carrots..not many as carrot
spikes me.

I replaced the sugar with liquid splenda

turned out excellent!

was just as good as kfc.

it was a bit dryer then I like so I made extra dressing to adjust it as I
like and bough whole peppercorns to grind in my pepper grinder..nothing
beats fresh ground pepper on coleslaw

so I would say it was a huge success ..excellent recipe!

I've seen some where you pour hot vinegar on the slaw etc...this was very
easy..very tasty

Someone brought a coleslaw today to our kiddush(feed after services) adn I
took a taste and then went back for a full serving. It was awsome! no
sugar, no mayo, I guess some kind of a vinegrette. Don't know whomade it
so cna't get the recipe. It clearly had cabbage, carrot and onion. I
might try fiddling with these foods and some vinegar adn not much oil, as
there wasn't much in this sallad. Any thoughts? I couldeat a bowlful of
that stuff and want to duplicate so I can:-)

Excellent, did you use the buttermilk? And which vinegar did you end up
going for?

and coriander or cumin and mustard seed and then pour it hot over the slaw
then refrigerate..

I used buttermilk and milk as the recipe called for..pretty much followed it
exactly as written except I doubled the dressing since I used two
cabbages..and I used a lot more pepper.

I used fresh lemons.

I used real mayo and I used 50/50 white and cider vinegar..though I bet any
will be as good..I tasted the dressing with each separate and was pretty
much the same since the buttermilk and lemon are strong.

I grilled 6 burgers and two steaks..wife ate a burger..I ate a steak and we
both were in coleslaw heaven..lol..oh plus onion and tomato slices..but the
star was definitely the slaw...even beat the steak and burger which is
saying a lot.

now I got lunches and dinners for a couple days..lol

I'm on a coleslaw kick at the moment.

Regular cabbage, cut fine
Red onion, diced
Celery, sliced fine
Sango sprouts, (have a distinct radish taste)
Balsamic rice bran oil dressing


Doing well with it so far

Recently, I've had some coleslaws from the deli counter of the supermarket
that were not strictly identified as "coleslaw." I'm sure they had real
sugar in them, and I didn't test afterwards, so who knows what they did to
my BG, but they were awfully good, and I think one could easily achieve the
same result with aartificial sweetener. One, which was VERY finely chopped,
seemed to have green cabbage, scallions, sweet red pepper, pea pods or
shoots of some kind, and possibly some green apple and/or cucumber. The
dressing was light, and mayonnaise-based. I think they called it crunchy
summer salad.

I can buy bagged crunchy summer salads. I mostly add the good old ranch
dressing, lol. One brand has a sachet of a mango/coconut dressing.
Wonderful stuff but not enough for the whole bag of salad.
