Cookouts wouldn’t be the same without a helping of crisp fresh slaw. How could you not have some crunchy tart cabbage on your plate to lend a little bit of balance to your lip smacking, juice dripping, finger licking BBQ. In most diners, fish houses or cafes up and down the coast of North Carolina, you will find coleslaw on your plate. If not it will at the very least be a side option on the menu. What I find fascinating are the many variations that you will come across.
Some people like their slaw sweet, some doused in vinegar sauce, others like it simple with only mayo contributing a bit of flavor. Personally, I prefer my slaw simple as well as healthy and tart rather than sweet. Creamy Greek yogurt adds just the right amount of tang to my coleslaw without it being overkill.
However, there are a couple of other ingredients, which might surprise some of you…Creole mustard and garlic. Yep, a pinch of these along with the Greek yogurt will have your guests pleasantly wondering what you did differently with your slaw.
Oh and don’t forget the vinegar! Only a cap full though, no more than that.
Don’t you want to run a finger through that creamy healthy fresh coleslaw dressing I know I do?
