Go to the barbecue
Who likes coleslaw here? I think this is one of the side dishes you like or hate.
Fortunately, this is a recipe I like very much. The first time I ate it was KFC a few years ago. Although I was hesitant to try it at first, I realized how great it is.
I know that there are many different versions of coleslaw, but today I want to share the best version. It is very simple, fast and the standard noodles you can find on most picnics and barbecues.
As mentioned earlier, this recipe is a classic version that everyone knows and loves. But the best part is that you can easily customize it according to your favorite seasonings and tastes.
Simple + delicious seasoning
It is always great to have seasonings on hand, and this is one of the recipes in this category. The main ingredients are as follows:
- Salt and pepper
Like I said-these are typical ingredients that most people have on hand. And the dressing is easy to customize according to the taste you want.
With this standard coleslaw sauce, I am happy to raise it to the next level and try different varieties in the next few months, because we tend to have a lot of barbecues and parties.
Should I use mayonnaise or miracle whip for coleslaw? The answer to this question depends entirely on your personal taste preferences. Some people even prefer to use buttermilk (for more sourness) or sour cream (for more intense flavor) to make seasonings.
Changes in the taste of coleslaw:
As I mentioned before, you can easily customize the flavors and seasonings used in coleslaw. Here are some changes:
- Asian coleslaw – add ramen, almonds, and soy sauce
- Buffalo Coleslaw – add some 1 TB ranch and a few tablespoons of buffalo sauce
- Roast chicken coleslaw – add ⅓ cup barbecue sauce and 1 cup shredded chicken
- Broccoli Salad-Broccoli Salad, Ramen and Peanuts!
- Ranch-add 1 cup broccoli, 1/4 cup sunflower seeds and 1/4 cup ranch
The possibilities are endless!
How to do it
Once you have mixed all the seasonings together, you can stir it until it becomes smooth and you are almost done. From there you can add any other ingredients you want to try, then add your coleslaw mixture and you are done.
Let cool until you are ready to serve, and then you have a delicious coleslaw recipe that everyone loves, which can be made in less than 10 minutes. 😉
How do you make creamy coleslaw? If you find that your seasoning is not creamy enough, please try adding a little bit of basic ingredient in our recipe, which is mayonnaise.
You can also try adding a bit of sour cream to increase the creaminess and give your salad a bit of flavor.
Tips and tricks
How can I prevent my coleslaw from becoming too watery? When the salad becomes too watery, even the creamiest dressing will be destroyed.
The best way to prevent the coleslaw from turning water is to add salt before mixing the cabbage with the seasoning. Salt will suck the excess water out of the cabbage, and the cabbage will usually leak out and make your dish drool. Salt the cabbage:
- Cut the cabbage and put it in a salad spinner or colander.
- Sprinkle 1 teaspoon of salt per pound of cabbage.
- Let stand for 30-40 minutes.
- Rotate the salad to remove excess water or squeeze out as much liquid as possible (do not squeeze or wring out), then pat dry with a paper towel.
- Mix the salad with the dressing. *Note: If you add salt to your cabbage in advance, do not add more salt if the recipe requires it.
What is the best way to store coleslaw? Coleslaw can be made up to 2 days in advance and stored in a covered plate in the refrigerator. Be sure to add salt to your cabbage so that it does not become watery while waiting to be served.
If you have leftovers, they can be stored in a covered plate in the refrigerator for 2-3 days. Please note that any coleslaw that has been left at room temperature for more than two hours should be thrown away.
