Old Fashioned Coleslaw

A friend called the other day and asked if I had an old fashioned Coleslaw recipe and I did have one, but I had not shared it on the blog. I promised her that I would post it very soon. Coleslaw is a year round salad that is a great side for so many dishes and here in Texas is almost a staple. We wouldn't think of having barbecue without coleslaw. This is the recipe that I have always used and have never changed it. When in season we use the cabbage from our garden so this is a great Garden to Table recipe!

  3. Your cabbage is beautiful! I love a good coleslaw, but I've never had it with apples either. I definitely need to give that a try!

  4. Miz Helen, that looks and sounds like my idea of coleslaw perfection! And with garden-fresh cabbage, mmm. I always slice my cabbage coarsely for coleslaw. AND I always end up eating it for breakfast, lunch and dinner!

  7. Growing up in Texas my self, I agree about "slaw", as my mother called it, almost being a staple. I can imagine how good yours is with cabbage straight from the garden.
