I have to make cole slaw for a picnic this weekend. There will be 80 to 90 people, about 15 will be kids. How much slaw do you think I should make for that many people? Gonna have corn and chips for the other sides. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks. :cool:

I am going to the store in a few to buy cole slaw fixings for 100. I buy my cabbage pre-shredded and go by serving on the back of the package. I will check back in when I return.

I was going to say 8-10lbs which when I prepare it come out right at 2 gallons using 2 - 5lbs course shredded bags of cabbage.

Thanks Guys. I was gonna use the shredded bags from Restaurant Depot. I'm not sure what those weigh but should be able to figure out. Thanks again. :cool:

We use one bag of shredded slaw mix from RD for 50 people when we have apps, 2-3 meats, potato salad and garlic bread.
