BBQ's right hand: Cole Slaw.

If you like like BBQ you probably like coleslaw. If you like the slaw at your local market you will love what I have for you today. Coleslaw is probably one of BBQs most widely used side dishes and in the American South an acceptable topping for hot dogs.

Coleslaw is like a salad but resembles a salsa. We make our Coleslaw with a bunch of different ingredients depending on our mood, but one thing is consistent, the dressing (my Moms recipe). So lets make the dressing.

Coleslaw Dressing

1 egg
2 Tablespoons sugar
2 Tablespoons cider vinegar (sometimes 1 tablespoon cider vinegar and 1 Tablespoon Lime Juice)
1 Tablespoon water
Pinch or 2 of salt
1/2 cup mayonnaise

Place the egg, sugar, vinegar, water and salt in a small pan and slowly heat while whisking. As it heats and you whisk, it will become foamy like cream. When it is heated through and all turned to the creamy consistency remove from heat and taste. Should be really yummy. Let cool.

Add the mayo and whisk some more. That's it, takes all of 5 minutes. Taste again and place in the refrigerator until you are ready to use.

Bryan Knox's Slaw Dressing

1/3 cup Mayonnaise
1/3 cup Sour Cream or Yogurt
2 Tablespons Honey or Sorghum
1 Tablespoon Mustard seed (yellow or brown)
1 Tablespoon Lemon juice
Pinch Salt

Mix together in a bowl and chill.

Now for the slaw part. We really do not follow a recipe and are known for using whatever we have but below are a couple favorites. We like to cut the ingredients in various shapes from long and skinny to short and stubby. Have some fun and mix it up a bit.

Traditional Coleslaw

1/4 head purple cabbage
1/4 cup green cabbage
1/4 cup golden raisins
1/4 cup slivered almonds - toasted optional
1 Tablespoon chopped onion
The dressing (recipe above)

Mix together in a bowl and refrigerate. Stir before serving

Carrot Slaw

1 bowl of grated carrots
1 handful raisins
The Dressing (recipe above)

Mix together and refrigerate. Stir before serving

Fruit Slaw (salad)

2 apples chopped
handful grapes cut in half
1/4 cup raisins
1 carrot grated
Mango or pretty much whatever else you want. Berries are good or even cabbage.
The Dressing (recipe above)

Mix together and refrigerate. Stir before serving

There you go, slaw, the right hand of BBQ among the greats of side dishes. You can easily make up your own slaw recipes once you can make a nice dressing, and now you can.
