Devotees of those prepackaged mixed-green salads might do well to snap up a couple bags of coleslaw mix the next time you’re in your produce section. Not only is it often ridiculously inexpensive (a recent sale at our local grocery store had ‘em 10 for $10 … though we have to admit, we’re at a loss as to what you’d do with 10 full bags of coleslaw mix), but it’s surprisingly versatile as well. Where once we might have eyed a bag of coleslaw mix and thought, well, coleslaw, as these recipes show, coleslaw mix can add a welcome bit of texture to a broad range of dinners, from a hot and cheesy tuna melt to a warm, Thai-inspired steak salad. It sure beats shredding cabbage by hand.
These hot tuna melts are hearty enough for dinner and easy, too — just 15 minutes is all it takes to make these toothsome sandwiches.
London broil is marinated in a flavorful Asian marinade then grilled, sliced and tossed with a warm Thai-inspired salad. It’s a perfect dinner for warm spring nights.
A simple dressing of lemon juice and mayonnaise tossed with coleslaw mix makes for an excellent accompaniment to grilled tilapia.
