Red Cabbage Slaw Tips

What can you serve with this red cabbage slaw recipe?

Since this red cabbage slaw recipe is reminiscent of honey mustard, it would be great piled on slow-cooker pulled pork sandwiches, or even scooped on top of a fried chicken sandwich. It would also pair nicely with one of our barbecue ribs recipes.

How do you store red cabbage slaw?

Store red cabbage slaw in an airtight container in the refrigerator. It will be best when served and eaten within a few days. The longer it sits in the fridge, the less crunchy your cabbage will be—so we advise eating it sooner than later!

What else can you put in red cabbage slaw?

Feel free to experiment with putting thinly sliced or chopped red onion, or shredded carrots, into this red cabbage slaw recipe.
