Need a good Coleslaw Recipe
 
Greetings farkers :)

I'm gonna cook two butts overnight Thursday night for a Friday evening meal. I need a good coleslaw recipe, preferably something along the lines of the southern sweet coleslaw variety... I'm also gonna serve up a batch of PatioDaddio's baked beans... any great suggestions for an additional side would be appreciated :)

We've had good comments on this KFC coleslaw clone from food.com.

On the other hand, I just bookmarked PatioDadio's recipe to give it a try!

This is an option.

Slaw, Coleslaw, Popeye's Once again their coleslaw is close to KFC's - this is the one that circulated for Popeye's: INGREDIENTS:
In food processor, process: 1-2 Heads Cabbages 1/4 to 1/2 green pepper 1/4 to 1/2 small onion 1 medium to large carrot
In bowl, mix until smooth: 2 cup Miracle Whip (you could use light or fat-free but the flavor is with the regular Miracle Whip) 1/2 cup sugar 1/4 cup white vinegar 1/4 cup vegetable oil Recipe Type Salad Recipe Source Author: Kitchen Witch
Source: Ron Douglas, "America's Secret Recipes", 2006/08/27
Combine processed veggies with dressing (which should have a hint of sweetness to it).
KFC Cole Slaw recipes/clones call for milk/buttermilk or horseradish with the addition of salt and pepper.

This is my go to recipe. I modified it with evoo for the oil and sriracha for the hot sauce.

Pattio Daddios (John) slaw is really good. I would not consider it on the sweet side but you could add more sugar, also make it a day in advance, the flavor is better.

This is my favorite creamy coleslaw recipe, simple and delicious.

Coleslaw

1 tablespoons Dijon mustard
1 tablespoons red wine vinegar
1 tablespoons sugar
1/2 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
1/2 lemon, juiced
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
1 head of cabbage shredded
1 large carrot shredded

In a large bowl, mix together the dressing ingredients. Add the shredded cabbage and carrot and toss until combined.

Here ya go:
Cranberry Apple coleslaw
Ingredients:
  • 14 ounces shredded cabbage and carrot coleslaw mix
  • 2 granny smith apples
  • 2 cups dried cranberries
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/4 cup sour cream
  • 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1 teaspoon mustard powder
  • teaspoon white pepper

Directions:
Core the apples and cut them into long thin strips (sort of like a large matchstick)
In a large mixing bowl, combine the coleslaw mix, sliced apples, and cranberries. In a smaller mixing bowl, whisk together the mayonnaise, sour cream, vinegar honey, mustard powder, and white pepper until the mixture is smooth and creamy. Pour the dressing over the coleslaw mixture and toss to combine. Cover and refrigerate for at least an hour prior to serving.

Everyone I've served this slaw to raves about it.

Fellow Brethren Bigmista's Pineapple coleslaw is also wonderful:

1 bag pre-shredded cabbage
1 can crushed pineapple
1/2 cup apple cider vinegar
2 tsp salt
2 tsp black pepper
1/4 cup brown sugar
Pour the juice from pineapple into a bowl. Add the vinegar, salt, pepper and sugar. Mix and set aside. This is the dressing. Put the pineapple in a large bowl with the cabbage. Pour in the dressing and toss well.

Thanks for the recommendations. Slaw is generally an intensely personal
thing, so your kind words mean a lot.

You can certainly sweeten it up with sugar. For some reason my Southwest
Slaw recipe has been very popular online of late. I don't know which I like
more. It depends which day you ask me. :-D

Well since I'm gonna try your beans I might as well try the slaw too :) I need one more side and I'm not sure what it's gonna be just yet.

Here's my recipe that I posted in my appley butts thread. It definitely fits the description of creamy sweet slaw that you mentioned. It is fantastic with pulled pork:

Ingredients

  • 1 head green cabbage, finely chopped and pressed to remove excess water
  • 2 carrots, peeled and grated
  • 1/4 cup red onion, finely chopped
  • 2 cups broccoli, finely chopped
  • 2 cups mayonnaise
  • 2 cups buttermilk
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon dill weed
  • salt and pepper to taste


Directions

  1. Toss all vegetables together in a large bowl. In a separate bowl whisk together mayonnaise, buttermilk, sugar, lemon juice, cayenne pepper, dill, salt, and pepper. Pour mayonnaise mixture over cabbage mixture and toss thoroughly. Cover with plastic wrap and place in refrigerator for 2-3 hours before serving.
