Coleslaw For Barbecue

154. With summer right around the corner it's time to start pulling out your summer salad recipes and accompaniments to your grill.

This recipe for coleslaw is one of my favorite salads. I usually make this around Easter time and all through the summer. One benefit of living in New York are the diners and Jewish Deli's. As soon as you sit down, a bowl of coleslaw and pickles are placed in front of you. You could make a meal just eating these. Coleslaw is so delicious!

My recipe is from the Joy of Cooking Cookbook. This cookbook is a must in every kitchen.
The caption under the title of this recipe reads, "The tangy dressing in this slaw goes well with meat broiled or barbecued outdoors..." You are going to love this.
Coleslaw For Barbecue
Joy of Cooking Cookbook, page 97
1 cup Mayonnaise
4 chopped scallions
2 teaspoons vinegar
1/8 teaspoon Worcestershire Sauce
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper
1/4 teaspoon sugar
Add this mixture to:
3 cups shredded cabbage
3 cups salad greens
1 thinly sliced carrot
1/2 green pepper, cut into strips
Toss salad lightly and serve.
So good! I like to use a variety of veggies. Sometimes, I replace scallions for red onion chopped fine. Or, I like to use half green cabbage and half red cabbage. Other possibilities are celery seed, dill weed or parsley to change the flavor.
And rather than slicing carrots I like to shred them.

“To remember a successful salad is generally to remember a successful dinner;
at all events, the perfect dinner necessarily includes the perfect salad.”
George Ellwanger 1848-1906
