Hi friends,

I am looking for some different cole slaw recipes rather than the "usual". What are your favorite variations? A really simple one I used to use was to buy the prepackaged cole slaw mix and dress it with Tastefully Simple's vidalia onion salad dressing and some sunflower or sesame seeds......

This one is my absolute favorite "different" type of coleslaw; we all love it.

CILANTRO COLE SLAW

For the salad:
2 large granny smith apples, julienned
1 large red pepper, stem, seeds and membrane, removed and julienned
1 large green pepper, stem, seeds and membrane, removed and julienned
1 large yellow bell pepper, stem, seeds and membrane, removed and julienned
1 small head of green cabbage, julienned thin
1 small head of red cabbage, julienned thin
4 yellow corn tortillas julienned thin and fried
. . .and if you can find them,
4 red corn tortillas julienned thin and fried
4 blue corn tortillas julienned thin and fried
otherwise, use 12 yellow corn tortillas.
1 bunch cilantro leaves, whole

For the dressing:
1/2 cup canola oil
4 cloves garlic, minced
1/4 bunch of cilantro, chopped fine
Juice of 3 limes
Salt to taste

Combine all ingredients, except tortillas, into a bowl and mix well.
Add dressing and tortillas and mix lightly being careful not to break up tortillas too small.


Also, for a different twist to your current slaw recipe, use very good quality Bleu Cheese dressing instead of your traditional cole slaw dressing. You can even try adding some roasted pecans.

Pineapple...or no pineapple? Carrot, or not? The first "recipe" I ever saw for slaw had no pineapple or carrot, but used Granny Smith apples, and apple juice. We tried different types of apples in it...well, actually, only tried Golden Delicious and Granny Smith. Liked the Golden Delicious better.

I was just looking for some slaw ideas the other day, but ended up doing this, mixed together some mayo/horseradish sauce, a little vinegar and sugar, & some dill weed and celery flakes, pepper & a little garlic powder, and threw in some raisins.
Here is a recipe I made for a party a while back-it's different and good!RecipeDetail

I have found what I think is the perfect cole slaw recipe filler.

1 part sugar (1/4 cup)
1 part vinegar (1/4 cup)
2 parts mayonnaise (1/2 cup)

I buy a commercial package of premade slaw mix and add these ingredients to it.

Some people like to use salt and pepper to this. I prefer white pepper and celery seeds in my coleslaw, but you don't have to add anything more than the three ingredients listed to have a really great slaw.

My kids do not like coleslaw, but they will eat cabbage if prepared this way:

1/2 head green, 1/2 head red cabbage
shaved carrot
mix lightly with Italian Dressing (meaning don't saturate it) and pepper.

Wow, I should have perused more forum topics, before I posted my coleslaw recipe in "what's for dinner tonight"

O’leans Easy Cole Slaw

1 bag shredded cole slaw mix
1 large apple (I like Golden Delicious) peeled & chopped
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
1 bottle of your favorite cole slaw dressing - chilled
1/2 tsp. fresh ground pepper
Mix all the ingredients together, adjusting the amount of cole slaw dressing to your own preference.
Chill at least 1-2 hours before serving (overnight is even better!)
