Coleslaw - Southern Style Creamy

This cole slaw goes well with smoked meats. I made some great baby back ribs in the smoker and this supplied the vegetable balance for easy digestion and a light side dish.

We still have all the ingredients to make this delectable dish at the farmers market.

Coleslaw - Old Fashioned Country

This old fashioned cole slaw recipe goes well with holiday meals. It is the creamy style that our kids perferred growing up.

The nice thing about this recipe is you can still get all the vegetables at the farmers market.

Coleslaw - Sweet'n'Sour

I have a friend that is considering starting a business when he retires doing catering with smoked and BBQ meats as his specialty. He has been experimenting with various side dishes that go with this type of food. I asked him for his cole slaw recipe and have made a few modifications for my taste.

He does a great job on the meat side of things too.

Coleslaw - The Waldorf Version

The classic Waldorf salad uses lettuce, but this version uses cabbage. Like the original invented by Oscar Tschirky, the dining room manager at the renowned Waldorf-Astoria hotel in New York city, is has apples, walnuts and it is addictive in its crisp, delicate, crunchy, sweet and sour form.

History lesson aside, this is a great slaw.

Coleslaw - Curried

I like curry, which is a little out of place in Minnesota, given its Scandinavian roots. This slaw combines winter vegetables and the tastes of SE Asia.

It features a sweet curry from Penzey's Spices located Wauwatoa, WI. Bill Pensey blends spices from all over the world and has stores all over the US. I just mail order most of what we use. Pensy spices are the freshest and boldest I have found.
