I know you can make slaw from cabbage or broccoli, but what other things have you made slaw from? I suppose, if the slaw doesn't have any cole product in it, then it wouldn't be coleslaw, but you get the idea, right?
What crazy ingredient(s) do you use, and how do you dress it? What do you serve it with? Please share your secrets!
First time we made pea slaw the reaction was quite surprising. Now it's fairly common. Just sub whole peas for the cabbage. This is the vinegar dressing vers.-no mayo.
Carrot slaw is still unexpected.
Lima bean slaw (similar to pea slaw)
Edamame slaw with a sesame oil dressing
My fav remains a riff on Chinese chicken salad, heavy on the slaw ingred.
Kohlrabi. Grate it or use a spiral slicer or shredder and treat it like cabbage.
Kale, finely julienned, dressed in vinagrette or a yogurt base with apple, onion, carrot, etc.
I have added minced habanero to my basic slaw when I make it for pulled pork sandwiches. We love it, but, then again, we breathe fire.
