Spectacular Overnight Slaw
Total TimePrep: 15 min. + chilling
Love this. Remember this recipe won. I always laugh at the “tweaks” and “omission” comments. Theirs didn’t win! Great just as printed!!!
I love this recipe. Never used olives, but we added chopped fresh jalapeno pepper to taste. I will not give fewer stars because my taste is different! Thanks for the recipe!
Another vote to nix the olives. Especially those with pimiento in them. YUCK. Chopped apple for me, and Stevia in the Raw or Truvia to sub for the sugar. The rest sounds great except the quantity. 16 servings is far too much for just two people.
Used two packages of coleslaw mix, left out the olives and red onion,and substituted Splenda for sugar. All with excellent results.
This was very tasty. I added two Tbs. chopped chile peppers, since my husband loves spicy foods, and halved the amount of olives, which he doesn't care for. It turned out great and I'll dfinitely be making this slaw again.
Richard, you've answered your own question. South Carolina. Southerners may not have had access to sugar. My Kentucky grandmother's cornbread had no sugar and was flat, no baking powder. My dad loved it stirred into buttermilk. It's all in what you are raised with.
Why won't it save? In my recipe box??
I have never understood sugar in slaw or cornbread. They simply don't belong, but to each his own. We chop the cabbage using the old-fashioned circle chopper, add a couple shakes of salt and pepper and paprika (or seasoned salt), a spoon or two of mayo and a cap or two of white vinegar--any vinegar you like will do. Sit it in the fridge for a couple of hours and stir. VERY LITTLE MAYO is needed...it may look dry when you finish, so leave it in the fridge to set-up. We use this on top of Eastern North Carolina 'que sandwiches as served in places like Allen
I cannot eat raw onions................. so minus them............ This is fantastic!!
I've been making this for over 40 years. I love olives, but not in slaw. I also use packaged slaw mix. I spent enough years cutting up cabbage. LOL.
