Southern Slaw

Southern Slaw

Southern slaw is a classic coleslaw dish that is popular in the Southern United States. It is typically made with shredded cabbage, carrots, and other vegetables that are mixed with a creamy dressing made with mayonnaise, vinegar, sugar, and spices.

To make Southern slaw, cabbage and carrots are typically shredded using a box grater or food processor. The shredded vegetables are then mixed together in a large bowl, along with other ingredients such as thinly sliced onions, chopped bell peppers, or diced jalapeƱos, depending on the desired level of spice.

The dressing for Southern slaw is typically made by combining mayonnaise, apple cider vinegar, sugar, mustard, and other spices such as celery seed or paprika. The dressing is then mixed together with the shredded vegetables until everything is evenly coated.

Southern slaw is often served as a side dish alongside grilled meats, fried chicken, or barbecue. It is also commonly used as a topping for sandwiches, burgers, and hot dogs. The creamy dressing adds a tangy and slightly sweet flavor to the crisp and crunchy cabbage, making it a refreshing and flavorful addition to any meal.
