1-cup Mayonaise(Miriacle Whip)
1/4-cup-sugar
1/4-cup Vinegar
1-tsp.ground Celery seed
S/P- to taste
1/2-lemon juice(squeezed)
Mix and cover a head of shredded Cabbage and let set for 2-3hrs.

You can flavor from there... -

Yummy.

Raisins in slaw? Is that legal? Might have to give that a try.

If I was craving slaw I would send the Warden about 2 blocks to the nearest KFC. That is the place who's founder looked a lot like DrBBQ. They make the best there is or ever have been seen on earth. I got the recipe to clone it...But whuts the use? Fact is you couldn't buy the stuff to make it except about 10 x the price of whut it take to buy some. Listen to me now. I had mushy briskets and put it on cheap white buns with KFC Coleslaw and scattered liberally with Frank's. They keep saying..Dang that the best pushed pork I ever had. lol..I like fooling dumb Texans

Yeah, I make carrot raisin slaw

2C Shredded Carrot, allow to drain
1/2C thompson raisins (dark ones, not sultana), puffed and stemmed
1/3C Mayo
1T vinegar

to do the raisins cover with boiling water, let sit a few minutes, might dump and cover again with boiling water, they will swell then you take the stems out. this takes the sweetness down, softens them and makes it so you can find hidden stems. when done that squeeze the water out of em a bit by hand, even blot em dry a bit on paper towels.

can put different spices in but it doesn't really need any ... I put about 1/4t corriander in my last batch

dump the carrot juice once more or blot it a bit with paper towel then throw it all together ... keeps a few days

Went to KFC last night and the Cole Slaw was completely different. Don't know if was a mistake or if they have changed the recipe, hope not.

Here's the three I've settled on over the years.



Here is an unusual, but very good, recipe from Danny Gaulden. If you do not know who Danny is go to http://www.dannysbbq.com/recipes.asp. Naturally Iíve modified it to suit our taste, as Iím sure you will also as time goes bye.

Danny Gauldenís Old South Slaw Dressing

1 tablespoons salad oil
6 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
3 tablespoons sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1/4 teaspoon crushed garlic

Even though we use a modified Corky's slaw dressing at the restaurant, there's one I like better. Matter of fact, it's the only one I fix here at home. I LOVE this stuff, but you may not. It's what I consider deep, old south, and what Carolyn and I had every time we went to eat at a seafood house, bbq joint, etc. in south or north Louisiana. Matter of fact, Carolyn's mother fixed a very similar recipe all her life, (she lives in Baton Rouge now and spent many years on the famous river road between New Orleans & Baton Rouge as a home education teacher). Lot of fine cooking goes on down there. Anyway, here is the recipe. It is a sweet sour mix. If you like the tart, sweet taste on your slaw, you'll love this. Nice thing about it is that you can't "over extend" this dressing. If you apply too much, it doesnít just stick to everything and make it too wet as does a creamy dressing. It just drains down to the bottom. It will keep a couple of days or more on the slaw before crispness is gone. Don't let the simplicity fool you. I've always said some of the best cooking comes from simple recipes. This is one of them. Just takes a couple of minutes to fix. Also, don't let the looks of it fool you. Just try it and let me know what you think.

Mix well and pour over slaw. This is a small recipe and makes enough dressing for about 3-4 people. Adjust accordingly.


Vinegar Cole Slaw:

1/2 head of green cabbage
1/4 head of red cabbage
1 small bell pepper, chopped
1 small sweet onion, chopped
2 carrots, grated
.
Dressing:
1-cup sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1 teaspoon dry mustard
1 teaspoon celery seed
1 cup cider vinegar
Ĺ cup white vinegar
Ĺ cup water

Combine coleslaw, cabbage, chopped bell pepper, chopped onions, and grated carrots in a large serving bowl.

In a bowl combine remaining ingredients. Pour over cabbage, stir in. Refrigerate for at least eight hours, I usually go for 24 hours in a flat, covered, plastic container large enough to let most of the cabbage rest in the dressing.

Mayonnaise/Sour Cream Cole Slaw

1/2 head of green cabbage
1/4 head of red cabbage
1/2 cup white vinegar
1/2 up sugar
1-cup mayonnaise
1-cup sour cream
1 Tbs celery seed
S&P to taste

Refrigerate and let it sit overnight in a covered container. Blend with cabbage three hours before serving, keep refrigerated until then.

Well if yall are bent on a DIY crusade go to Kroger and buy the big bags of shredded cabbage and snag one bottle of Kroger Brand Coleslaw dressing for each bag. Or better yet read the directions on the bottle. Combine...let it sweat in the ice box for a bit. Drag it out and eat. Its a grand prize winner. Much mo betta than Hidden Valley Ranch Coleslaw Dressing.
