Favorite cole slaw/pasta salad to go?

Does anyone have a favorite place to buy one of these BBQ side dishes for camping? I was going to make some, but I'm also making a bunch of other things and would rather just pick this up.
Looking in Boston/Cambriville.

  1. My taste buds are usually more refined that this.....but, for slaw and pasta salad... here goes !! I love the slaw at KFC...Its not huge chunks, right sweetness, very digestable. And for pasta....I love old fashioned macaroni salad from the supermarket. Although I generally buy it from Whole Foods (making it a bit mor gourmand :)

    For some reason when it comes to BBQ, I just love the old fashioned stuff I grew up on, like the aforementioned. And the biscuits at KFC...... ooh, don't get me started !

      I was hoping someone knew of maybe a mom and pop shop that made their own and would recommend.

        Sorry for replying without looking at your area of interest. Soundbites on Broadway in Somerville has great sides...slaw and pasta/potato salad. There's Blue Ribbon BBQ on Mass Arlington, and in Newton. There's the S&S deli in Cambridge and Redbones in Somerville. I realize some of this skirts your area, but are really just a street or so away. Most quality butcher shops will also carry slaw and mac salad.

          I forgot about Wings They have a few locations, I think Allston and Somerville. I had the wings at someones house for a party ...they were great. They have slaw and mac salad. A lot of places that have slaw do not have mac salad, only potato. Check the www for the location for you.
          Good luck. PS: I found many delis and BBQ places do not really make their own slaw/salads....many are the "food service" products. Again, if in a pinch you could always hit Whole Foods...there's one off memorial dr. on River St., and one by Mass ave, and of course fresh pond.
