Fabulous Flavors Coleslaw Recipe

There are many types of cabbages sporting different colors, shapes, and leaves. One of the most beautiful cabbages is ornamental cabbage, with colors of pink, red, purple, white and of course, green. Use it to garnish plates and if desired it can be eaten, although it is a tad bitter. Napa cabbage or Chinese cabbage does not form a solid, round head. It stands up straight with long crinkly leaves and provides delightful flavor to salads. Savoy cabbage is one of the best-known cabbages because it forms a solid head is incredibly delicious. The leaves are curly and have a design, rather than smooth. It is a great cabbage for coleslaw.

Like lettuce salads, cabbage salads like coleslaw are fun to make because there is so much variety and color to make your salad beautiful. When you are at the market and see the lovely shades of bell peppers, imagine the wonderful combination when placed in a coleslaw recipe. Red and purple cabbages are very healthy vegetables for us and eating raw vegetables is usually when we get the most nutritional value. Some people like to add their favorite cheddar or mozzarella cheese and of course, carrots, raisins, and pineapples chunks are common coleslaw ingredients.

You can make coleslaw by shredding or cutting the various vegetables or even add variety by doing both. There are many types of dressings, some with a mayonnaise base and others with buttermilk or a vinaigrette style. Some people use mustard as the base. Common seasonings include dill, celery seed, and cinnamon. Barbecued meats, fried chicken, and cornbread are good things to serve with coleslaw. It is a welcome addition to a potluck or picnic. Best of all, thanks to the many different recipes, it never has to be the same.
