Delightful, our recipe for Coleslaw is especially tasty with Barbecue. Great on sandwiches or as a side dish with barbecued beef, ribs, chicken or pork.

Total time
Recipe type: Side Dish
Cuisine: American
Serves: 2 1/2 Cups
  • 2 Cups shredded cabbage
  • 1 small red onion; quartered lengthwise, and thinly sliced
  • 1/2 teaspoon caraway seeds
  • 5 1/2 teaspoons granulated sugar
  • 5 teaspoons white wine vinegar
  • 4 teaspoons vegetable oil
  • salt
  • ground pepper
  1. In bowl, combine cabbage, onion, caraway seeds, sugar, vinegar, oil and salt and pepper to taste. Mix well.
  2. Allow to 'marinate,' covered, for several hours in the refrigerator for best flavors.
Try adding any of the following, substituting an equal portion of these for that of cabbage: shredded apple; shredded celeriac; shredded carrot; or shredded red cabbage. In fact, this recipe may be made entirely with red or savoy cabbage (particularly good in winter). Red cabbage makes a uniquely magenta colored dressing that is beautiful with things like shrimp or chicken.
