I have this head of cabbage in the fridge for a week now and it needs to be served. Instead of cooking it, I thought about making cole slaw. You guys have any good recipes? The wife is out of town, so this is just for me.

Cajun Cole Slaw

5 tablespoons mayonnaise, heaping
2 tablespoons yellow mustard, heaping
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 teaspoon garlic salt
juice of 1 lemon
4 each bell peppers, sliced
1 large head cabbage, shredded
1 teaspoon Tobasco
2 tablespoons ketchup
1 tablespoon wine vinegar
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
3 teaspoons salt, or to taste
freshly ground pepper to taste
2 medium onions, grated
Put mayonnaise and mustard in a bowl large enough to hold complete mixture, but shaped so that the mixture can be beaten with a fork. Beat mayonnaise and mustard until combined. Add olive oil slowly, beating all the time. Beat until mixture has returned to the thickness of original mayonnaise.

Add hot sauce, continuing to beat. Add ketchup and keep beating. Add salt and garlic salt, beating all the time. Add wine vinegar (this will thin the sauce down). Beat this thoroughly, adding the lemon juice as you do so. Taste for salt and pepper.

Place shredded cabbage, peppers, and onions in a large salad bowl. Pour sauce over and toss well. This should be done about an hour before serving. Tastes even better the next day.

Classic Creamy Cole Slaw



3 Tbsp. heavy cream
1 Tbsp. malt vinegar
1/2 tsp. salt, plus more to taste
1/4 tsp. freshly ground black pepper, plus more to taste
1/2 tsp. celery seed (optional)
1 small head green cabbage
1 large carrot (optional)
1/4 head red cabbage (optional)
1/2 red onion (optional)



In a very large bowl, combine cream, vinegar, salt, pepper, and celery seed, if you like.
Cut the cabbage in half lengthwise, remove the core, and cut cabbage into very fine shreds (you can use a mandolin, if you have one, but a very sharp knife and a steady hand work just fine). Add cabbage to dressing.
Peel and grate carrot, if using, and add to cabbage. Shred red cabbage and/or red onion, if using, and add to cabbage.
Toss slaw, lifting from the bottom of the mixture to bring the dressing to the top. Keep tossing. It will take awhile to thoroughly combine the ingredients, you want the slaw thoroughly and completely coated with the small amount of dressing.
Taste and add more salt and pepper to taste, if you like. Toss again to combine.
For a crunchy slaw, serve immediately; for a slightly softer slaw cover and chill for at least 1 hour and up to overnight. Toss again and serve.

Wow, that was quick. Thanks Flip. I'm leaning toward the Cajun cole slaw, with a side order of Tums!:o:lol:

Seriously, that's the kind of recipe I'm looking for. I wanted to get away from the standard classic and Jewish slaws I've had for years.

I'm becoming a fan of asian slaws but I don't have a recipe for you. My mother made some when we were down in January that was really good. I'll try to get it from her.

My mom makes one that uses shredded cabbage and dry ramen noodles. You make a dressing of equal parts vinegar and sugar and add the flavor packet from the ramen. The ramen gets broken up into little pieces and then you add a handful of sunflower seeds.

I've got one similar to what J mentioned above but FileZilla is down so I can't grab the JPG off the net yet.

Here's another Asian one I've made.

Thai Cole Slaw

2 Tbs grated fresh ginger root
1 garlic clove, peeled and crushed
1 small onion, thinly sliced
2 cups cole slaw mix with carrots
1 tsp sesame oil
3 Tbs soy sauce
2 Tbs lime juice
1 Tbs honey
2 tsp ground coriander
1/2 tsp crushed red pepper


MIx and chill.

I make Thai Port Burritos using this. Of course, one must cook the pork and then add the above to bring it up to heat and then serve in tortillas.

It's funny you should bring that up. The spousal unit made that last night. It's great! :yum:

Simplicity.

Cabbage shredded
Carrots shredded
salt, pepper, mayo to taste

I haven't found much need for more than that. I usually don't salt it until I'm ready to eat it. It doesn't get as wet in the bowl without the salt.

I believe that to be it. Or it's at least very similar.

Cabbage?

Cook it in a skillet with butter, add salt and pepper.

My wife has an easy recipe for slaw. It's not traditional, but I like it better.

Shredded cabbage (she just buys the bags of pre-cut slaw with carrots in it).
Brianna's poppy-seed dressing
Bacon bits

Mix together to taste.
