Coleslaw is such a classic side dish to make, and there are as many coleslaw recipes as there are people. This particular one is my favorite non-mayo version. I have a classic KFC Coleslaw copycat on the site as well, and if you are into creamy, tangy coleslaw that is something you’ll definitely want to check out.

What Goes Well With Coleslaw?

ALL THE THINGS. But especially:

I really REALLY like loading up my barbecue pulled pork sandwiches with coleslaw right on top. It is a great texture to go with the smokey meat.

How long can coleslaw stay out?

Food shouldn’t stay out in the “danger zone” longer than a couple of hours to be safe. The danger zone is basically anything under steaming hot, and anything over fridge temperature. There is an actual temperature range that you can look up if you want, but a good rule of thumb is to keep hot things hot and cold things cold, and put away things promptly once you are done serving them.

Is coleslaw healthy?

It is vegetables. Cabbage and carrots and more cabbage, oh my. Vinegar based coleslaw is definitely better than creamy coleslaw from a calorie perspective, but whether it is “healthy” or not really depends on your diet and your goals. I don’t like to call things healthy or unhealthy. Everything is cool in moderation, right?

Traeger Tri-Tip

What is the best thing to do with cabbage?

Homemade coleslaw is way up there on MY list, but if you need some more ideas I have some of those too.
