How do you coleslaw?

There must be thousands of recipes/versions for coleslaw. What is your fav version?

I have a couple like Emeril's Maw Maws and Linda's (SILs aunt).

There were two threads on coleslaw recently:

Joe's Famous Coleslaw

ISO suggestions for "no mayo" cole slaw please

I personally like to add a bit of grated jalapeno to mine. I'm making coleslaw this weekend and am going to test drive my grandma's recipe (which I found in her cookbook binder--I'm at the farm and it is at home, it is different than any modern coleslaw recipes I've come across--will post the results).

I have the recipe for KFC slaw. Love the stuff.

KFC Cole Slaw
8 cups of finely diced cabbage
1/4 cup grated carrot
2 tbs. minced onions
Dressing:
1/3 cup granulated sugar
1/2 tsp salt
1/8 tsp. white pepper
1/4 cup whole milk
1/2 Best Foods or Helman’s mayonnaise
1/4 cup buttermilk
4 tsp. of plain white vinegar
4 tsp. of real lemon juice.
Mix all the dressing ingredients, and toss with the slaw. Refrigerate several hours, overnight is best. Keeps well, tossing occasionally.

Classic is always good. Coleslaw with Mangos, bok choy slaw, zuchinni slaw, apple slaw with poppy seed dressing.

I have two copycat versions--one has Tabasco in it, the other does not. I think the secret is using buttermilk + Tabasco. I often use buttermilk when I make creamy coleslaw and homemade mayo. Does your recipe have Tabasco in it?

Buonasera, Good Afternoon,

I am not really a fan of coleslaw, as I do not use bottled mayonnaise nor do I care much for cabbage in this fashion however;

The closest, I prefer mine as follows:

French style fresh Green Beans in match sticks blanched and chilled a bit, Beetroot grated, navel orange, ginger and ali oli which is: Evoo & Garlic ...

Another can be made with Tropical fruit in match sticks: Mango, Red Onion, cilantro, ginger, Mint & Chili Pepper & Lime Vinaigrette ...

Have lovely wkend,
Thanks for posting some interesting alternatives to a classic;
Ciao, Margaux.
