Slaws both Cabbage & Other

“Beloved by any name, we call it coleslaw, cole slaw, or slaw. The way we make it depends on where we grew up or what cuisine we’re creating. Regardless, a slaw’s tangy, acidic vinegar slices right through its accompanying fatty meat…” Chowhound

Thai Slaw with Peanut Dressing

Thai Slaw with Easy Peanut Sauce Dressing - fresh, delicious, crunchy with just a little spice.

In the summer heat (and it has been so hot & so humid, here) I can hardly get enough cool, crunchy salads. Here’s a fantastic crunchy little salad with a little bit of a Thai twist. That this is more American Thai  than Thai doesn’t detract from the utter deliciousness.

Vaguely Vietnamese Slaw

Vaguely Vietnamese Slaw: All the flavors you imagine might be with ingredients you can pick up anywhere. It's addictive.

Red Cabbage & Carrot Slaw with Cranberries, Mint & Honey

This Red Cabbage and Carrot Slaw practically screams fall – punctuated with sweet-tart chewy dried cranberries, a little extra crunch from the almonds and a zing from the cumin and mint, it really leans more towards Moroccan cuisine than Mexican or Asian or “good ‘ol” American like some of my other slaws. The flavors, though, adapt to a number of cuisines!

The Best Creamy Coleslaw

While my favorite cole-slaw happens to be a tangy/sweet Vinegar based one, there are times a creamy cole-slaw fits the bill. I decide based on what I’m serving and who’s going to be eating. Frankly a lot of my family likes the creamy version more!

Vinegar Based Cole-Slaw, Red or Green

I have to admit to being a little nuts about slaw, it doesn’t matter if it’s a Red Cabbage Slaw with a few Mexican flavors thrown in, a standard Creamy Green Cabbage Slaw like the one served with my Shrimp Po’ Boys, but my favorite, hands down is a Vinegar Based Slaw like this one.
