Shred It! Our Favorite Slaw Recipes are So Much More than Cabbage
What to do with all that zucchini? Here’s your very tasty answer!
Asparagus and Carrot Slaw
Sophistication in a slaw, and fresh tasting too in a olive oil and lemon dressing with mint.
Baby Bok Choy Slaw
Lively with fresh chiles and crunchy from the bok choy, this Asian-accented slaw has a sesame oil and rice vinegar dressing.
Never thought of making a slaw with broccoli? Give this recipe a try and you’ll see what you've been missing out on. Plus it only calls for the stems so you’ll have plenty of florets for another meal.
Classic Creamy Coleslaw
The creamy coleslaw by which to judge all others -- just right for a barbecue, picnic, or reunion.
Carrot doesn’t need cabbage to make slaw! No it can star alone (well with golden raisins for added sweetness). Or it can take centerstage in a lime dressing with sesame seeds (Try shaving veg for slaw with a vegetable peeler as this recipe directs, its a genius technique.)
Golden Beet Slaw
In you thought beets had to be cooked to be eaten, try this recipe. It’s another slaw that doesn’t use the box grater: the beets are cut into matchsticks.
Asian Cabbage Slaw
There’s no mayo here though this slaw has the classic cabbage plus carrot combo -- this time in a zingy lime-rice vinegar-cilantro dressing.
Kale Slaw with Peanut Dressing
Not at all traditional but totally delicious -- and just the thing for a barbecue side.
(Red) Cabbage and Fennel Slaw
Cabbage plus carrots might sound like pretty typical slaw -- but it’s not. Fennel stands in for the usual white cabbage and there’s a lively orange juice-ginger dressing.
This underappreciated brassica makes a fabulous slaw when paired with apple in a super simple lemon and olive oil dressing.
Did you ever think about making a slaw with iceberg? Likely not but you should; as this slaw with its creamy herby dressing proves, it makes an ace crispy side.
Celery Root and Apple Slaw
Celeriac or celery root has, as you might expect, a mild celery-like taste. We paired it with tart Granny Smith apple in a Dijon mustard dressing.
Cucumber and Jicama Slaw
Like your slaw extra crunchy? Well give this combo a try. Tossed with honey, and lime juice and dusted with chili powder it’s sweet-and-spicy side.
