Just when you think you have a favorite Coleslaw recipe, like I have, another one comes along. Here it is. The best part of this recipe is the dressing. It reminded me of Coleslaw when I was a child eating at a Diner or a Cafeteria. It's a very American Iconic recipe.
This was in the Dallas Morning News Arts & Life section, Wednesday, September 2, 2015.
It's from a restaurant called Off The Bone Barbecue. This recipe was always getting requested by customers. They finally released the recipe.
I've adapted the recipe slightly. It included 2 additional Bell Peppers. I think Bell Peppers have a strong taste that would be overpowering. If you want to, add 1 Yellow and 1 Orange Bell Pepper.
16 oz. packaged Coleslaw mix
1/3 C Diced Red Onion
1/3 C Diced Green Onion
2 medium Bell Peppers. 1 - Green, 1 - Red. Cut into Julienne strips.
2 1/2 TBS Minced Jalapeño Pepper
1 C Crumbled Blue Cheese
In a large mixing bowl:
Cole Slaw Mix
Toss to mix well.
1 C Mayonnaise
2 TBS Dijon Mustard
1 TBS Granulated Sugar
1 1/2 TBS Honey
1 TBS Apple Cider Vinegar
1 tsp Celery Seeds
1/2 tsp Granulated Garlic
1/4 tsp Pepper
Whisk all of the Dressing ingredients together in a medium mixing bowl.
Transfer to a jar and refrigerate until ready to serve.
Mix into the Coleslaw just before serving.
Peace in the Kitchen!
