Earlier this summer I wrote a post about my first coleslaw. Yes, fifty-something and I’m making my first coleslaw! What I didn’t tell you was that I’d hedged my bets by bringing both a mayo based AND a non-mayo based coleslaw to the BBQ. Today I’m sharing the non- mayo based coleslaw. It’s based on a recipe from Southern Living called Texas Coleslaw – and since everything’s bigger in Texas – it’s makes ALOT!
I was drawn to this recipe because, unlike the Creamy Coleslaw which is the more traditional green cabbage and carrots, it has green & red cabbage , red onions, carrots and red & yellow peppers. It’s so colorful – a feast for the eyes , as well as the tummy.
The dressing is an olive oil & vinegar based dressing, with cilantro, cumin, cayenne, and lime juice, for a Texas style kick. I think it’s the perfect accompaniment to grilled steak.
