I love cole slaw but I hate buying it already made because I need the cabbage to be crisp or it makes me gag. I found this recipe from one of my favorite blogs The Pioneer Woman. I tried it out at my super bowl party and everyone loved it. I was intrigued to make this because of the cilantro and Cayenne pepper. It is not spicy and the cilantro give it a nice fresh tang to it. The pepper just gives it a slight kick so don't worry if you don't like spicy food.
- 1/2 head green cabbage, sliced thin
- 1/2 head purple cabbage, sliced thin
- 2 1/2 cups whole milk, plus more for thinning
- 1 1/2 cups mayonnaise
- 2 tablespoons sugar
- 4 teaspoons white vinegar
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon ground black pepper
- 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
- 2 cups fresh cilantro leaves, barely chopped
Combine the shredded cabbage in a bowl. In a separate bowl, mix the milk, mayonnaise, sugar, vinegar, salt, black pepper and cayenne. Add more milk if you like the dressing a little thinner. Pour over the cabbage. Toss to combine.
Just before serving, toss in the cilantro. Can mix the slaw up to 2 hours before serving.
The only thing I would do different next time is to add dressing and let sit and then add more if needed because I felt it was a little to much dressing. I don't like soggy cole slaw. I will definitely make this again and again. Try it and let me know what you think.
