Recipe: Killer Slaw (pic)

Killer Slaw

There are some foods that are highly personal. They are the kinds of food
that tend to evoke intense memories that are usually tied to one's
upbringing. The first one that pops to mind for me is the Thanksgiving
feast. That's about as intensely personal as it gets for me. Well,
sauerkraut and pork is a very close second. Oh, and spaghetti is another.
Then there's lasagna, but I digress...



I've found that, within barbecue circles, there are a handful of side dishes
that are also intensely personal. Cole slaw is just such a side. If it ain't like
mama made, it just ain't right!

In my experience there are two major slaw camps -- creamy, and
non-creamy. I am tempted to call the second camp "vinegary", but I don't
know if that's the term I'm after. Perhaps they might prefer the "creamy
slaw sucks" moniker.

With all that said, I think I have developed a slaw recipe that will appease
everyone in the creamy vs. non-creamy debate. This slaw is decidedly
creamy enough, but also vinegary enough to be at home on a pulled pork
sandwich. Oh, and it's pretty healthy, too.

OK, that's enough chatter. Let's make some slaw!

Ingredients
2 bags (16 oz each) Tri-color slaw
3/4 cup Buttermilk
1/2 cup Sugar
1/4 cup Mayonnaise
2 Tbsp Canola oil
2 Tbsp Apple cider vinegar
2 1/2 tsp Garlic salt
1 tsp Peanut butter, creamy-style
1/2 tsp Celery salt
1 tsp Black pepper, ground fresh
1/8 tsp Maggi Seasoning
Juice of 1/2 lemon (approximately 1 Tbsp)

Method
Combine all of the ingredients, except the slaw mix, in an extra-large mixing
bowl.

Whisk the dressing until all of the ingredients are smooth and
well-incorporated.

Add the slaw mixture and fold it in to coat it all evenly.

Cover, refrigerated, for at least two hours or overnight, stirring
occasionally.

Serve and enjoy.

P.S. Here's the story behind the peanut butter.

I usually put roasted peanut oil in my slaw, but I couldn't find any locally and
I was in a jam (no pun intended). So, I decided to simply use canola and
peanut butter, since I was after a light peanut flavor.

Don't let it scare you off. My kids say that this is absolutely the best slaw
that I've ever made.

Looks good John! At $19 from Amazon and only 1/8 tsp. I may have to make it sans Maggi Seasoning when I try this one

I just used that link so you can see what it looks like. It's not nearly that expensive, and many stores carry it.

Note: If you can't find Maggi Seasoning, just use a dash each of
Worcestershire sauce and soy sauce.

Worcestershire and soy sauce. Might just as well use teriaki sauce. But at $19 a bottle I'm going to order 1 also

Looks really good! I was raised on my Pennsylvania Dutch Grandmother's vinegar based slaw that would knock your socks off. It was good but I prefer creamy.

I called my 82 yr. old Mom for the recipe and she gave me the basic recipe:
1 Head of Cabbage chopped fine
1 or 2 Carrots grated fine

Mix together into a dressing:
2/3 Cups Salad Oil (vegetable)
3 Tablespoons Vinegar
1/2 Cup Sugar
1 1/2 tsp. Celery Salt - She said you may want to taste after 1 tsp.

Pour over cabbage and carrots and put in the fridge.

She said this is a good basic recipe and you can add anything you want to it. I haven't tried it but will next weekend.
