Slaw Poll

for those that eat Carolina style bbq either on the sandwich or on the side....which do you prefer? More minced (like KFC) or more coarse (like the pre-shredded bags you get in the grocery store)?

I use a knife to cut the cabbage into ribbons (aka "chiffonade"), and use a peeler for the carrot(s). That's more like the bagged caggabe than the chopped from KFC. I cut slaw the same no matter what the dressing -- just because I like those ribbons -- unless I'm making so much it's worth using the Cuisinart or KitchenAid. In that case, I play it the way it lays.

Cappy,

I like the coarse, but I'd never turn down KFC slaw or any slaw for that matter, just one of those sides I feel was made for BBQ.

Only time I like fine is when I'm picking up a bucket of drums and thighs from KFC! Don't forget the gravy.

I prefer coarse but if it's good slaw, doesn't matter to me.

I don't care for slaw that's floating in too much milky mess.

I like the minced. Agree about floating in the milky stuff.

Coarse lends itself better to various dressings.

I like a finer type of cut more like a chiffonade and I like to use a variety of cabbages to give more crunch factor and often I will salt my cabbage as well to improve the texture.

That's another good point. What kind of cabbage should be used?

I use savoy, napa (Chinese cabbage) green and red but sometimes I also will use bok choy.

It is classified as a cabbage but I think it should be more into the lettuce category. The crunch is what I am after and sometimes bok choy is a good alternative.
