About a year ago I was traveling through Carolina at lunch time so I stopped at a "Q Shack" and had a sandwich. The sandwich had cole slaw on it and was one of the best B Q sandwiches I've ever had. I have tried to duplicate the cole slaw recipe but been unable to get the taste right. I feel like the slaw would not be good used in the conventional way. Thanks ahead if anyone can help me with the cole slaw recipe.

Here are a couple that I copied a couple of years ago. They're not mine but are pretty good. The third is one of my favorites and it's gotten lots of good comments.

3 cups chopped red cabbage
3 tbs minced white onion (can substitute scallions)
1 small carrot - grated or thinly sliced
3 tbs cider vinegar
3 tbs mayonnaise
1 tbs dijon mustard
1 tsp worchestershire
1/2 tsp sugar (adjust to taste)
1/4 tsp salt
1/8 tsp celery seed - lightly crushed Ground black pepper to taste
Dash or 2 of hot sauce
Mix everything together in a bowl, cover, and refrigerate for at least 1 hour.
Serves 4.

1/4c olive oil best you can get
2 Tbs white balsamic vinegar
1/2 tsp oregano
1/2 tsp basil
1 tsp salt
1 tsp black pepper
1 Tbs sugar and here you can experiment on the sweetness level
1/2 small head of green cabbage
1/2 yellow bell peeper chopped
1/4 red onion fine julienne
just do the standard mix and taste but I think
it tastes better on the 2nd day

For Sauce, stir together and set aside:

4 cups BEST FOODS (Helman's) mayonnaise (don't substitute any other kind/brand if at all possible)
4 TBS sugar
5-6 TBS cider vinegar
1 1/2 TBS salt
2-3 tbs dry mustard
1 t celery seeds
* except mayo, ingredients are approximate and to taste

Prepare: 4 1lb packages of shredded cabbage and carrots
1 diced green bell pepper
1 diced red bell pepper
1 cup finely diced white onion

Combine all ingredients, toss well and chill for several hours before serving.

This is also from Hellman's but uses lemon juice instead of vinegar.It is good.

1 cup Hellmann's® or Best Foods® Real Mayonnaise
3 Tbsp. lemon juice
2 Tbsp. sugar
1 tsp. salt
6 cups shredded cabbage
1 cup shredded carrots
1/2 cup chopped green bell pepper

In large bowl, combine Hellmann's® or Best Foods® Real Mayonnaise, lemon juice, sugar and salt. Stir in cabbage, carrots and green pepper. Chill, if desired.

there is a commercially made dressing from Hendricks out of Missouri. You can get it at Homeland and I think at Wal-mart but nto sure of that. It is sometimes in the specialty section.It is sweet/sour with lots of black pepper and made with cider vinegar.Fat free
