Coleslaw—From Quick to Quirky

Coleslaw RecipesMy husband loves California, but once in a while, his Midwestern roots tug at him. Like every time we go to a diner. In this part of the world, they put vinegar in the coleslaw, and mayo on the burger. It’s as if California cooks get confused by the time-difference, and start slinging the mayo at cabbage o’ clock, but by the time it gets to the plate, it lands on burger thirty.


But as I keep reminding him, there’s more than one way to chop a cabbage. Here, we’ve gathered an array of coleslaws which you’ll love, whether you’re a creamy traditionalist or a piquant Left Coast hippie. If you’re heading to a cookout and want to bring a standout side, take your pick of recipes.


Many supermarkets sell pre-shredded slaw mixes — sometimes incorporating carrots or broccoli, just to keep things interesting. This makes your life easier, but you can let your imagination be your guide and shred anything crunchy. We particularly like the recipe that ditches cabbage altogether. Inspiration from Mexico and the Asia bring global flair to two dishes. And, ooh, did you ever think you’d put sweet, crunchy apples in your coleslaw?
