A Little on the Side: 7 Healthy and Creative Slaw Recipes for End-of-Summer Barbecues
Cole slaw is, in its most basic form, a combination of shredded cabbage and mayonnaise. It comes to us from Germany and is often a complement to those other popular German imports: hot dogs and hamburgers. Cole slaw is a wonderfully cooling dish and is perfect for a cookout. It's also a great complement to rich meat dishes that can be a bit too much on their own, which is why it so often accompanies barbecue. But slaw is more versatile than that. You can sub all kinds of vegetables for cabbage, tinker with the flavor by using other condiments besides mayo, and add new ingredients to the mix. Here are 7 creative and healthy slaw recipes to go with whatever you're cooking!
