Tip of the Week – Dress up your Slaw

Did you know? Coleslaw comes from the Dutch koolsla, meaning “cabbage salad.” There are as many varieties of coleslaw as there are cooks!
The tip of the week is to add fresh cilantro to your traditional coleslaw – it gives it a fresh new taste!
Give it a try for your next bbq or potluck and see what your friends and family say about your updated slaw.

P.S. Do you know how to tell the difference between Cilantro and Parsley?
Cilantro’s leaves are rounded and Parsley has pointed leaves.
Cilantro is also called Coriander. In fact, the spice Ground Coriander is made from dried seeds of the plant.
Easy Cilantro Slaw
1/2 Head Cabbage, sliced thin
4 Carrots, Grated
3-4 Green Onions, Chopped
1/2 Bunch Cilantro, Chopped (about 1/2 cup, more or less to taste)
Pinch of Salt & Pepper
1/2 Jar Coleslaw Dressing
Serves 4-6; double recipe for party or potluck.
If Cilantro’s not your thing, try another fresh herb like basil or mint. (If using mint, cut back to 1/4 cup)

Stay fresh ;)

  1. This sounds delicious! I love Cilantro but never thought to try it in slaw. Another variation I’ve been eating lately (and by that I mean almost every other day) is purple cabbage slaw and subbing greek yogurt for most of the mayo or sour cream. Yum!!
