I like to come up with a new and interesting coleslaw to serve at Thanksgiving. With all the rich, heavy foods that the holiday table brings, I really enjoy the contrast these cold, crisp, bracing salads provide.

Love this unique coleslaw with sticky sweet spicy asian type bbq chicken. We found we prefer napa cabbage instead of regular. Sometimes I cut the mayo back to a couple Tablespoons and use a coconut greek yogurt for the dressing. So good! Read More

This was a bit too tangy for us. I am not a fan of sweet side dishes but this one needed a little sugar - at least for our taste. I served this with a fairly sweet grilled chicken and rice. I thought the sweetness of the chicken would balance out the tartness of this slaw but it didn't work for us. Adding a bit of brown sugar to the dressing would be a good thing. Read More
