Big Bob Gibson Mustard Slaw


This recipe for mustard slaw -- the Memphis version of this classic side dish -- is served at Big Bob Gibson Bar-B-Q in Decatur, Alabama. Like most slaws, this one tastes even better the next day. Choose a cabbage with crisp, firmly packed leaves; the head should be heavy for its size.
