15 Surprisingly Amazing Coleslaw Recipes That Will Be the Star of the Picnic
There’s nothing sadder than a bowl of gloppy, store-bought coleslaw languishing at the end of a picnic table. But when done right, coleslaw is one of the best summer sides—it adds much-needed crunch and brightness to everything from tacos to a pulled pork sandwich. Here are 15 of our favorite, out-of-the-box slaws.
Easy Asian Quinoa Slaw
Adding protein-packed quinoa means that this side can easily double as a main (or at least as tomorrow’s lunch).
Brussels Sprouts, Apple and Pomegranate Slaw
So much texture, so little time.
Swedish ‘Pizzasallad’ Cabbage Slaw
Fun fact: In Sweden, coleslaw is a standard pizza side (the vinegar cuts the richness of the cheese and tomato sauce). And who are we to argue?
Jicama Mango Slaw with Cilantro and Lime
Sweet, crunchy and totally refreshing, this is perfect summer fare (though we’ve been known to eat it all year round).
This gorgeous, crunchy rainbow is packed with grated carrots, ginger, fresh pineapple, and red and green cabbage.
Quinoa Broccoli Slaw with Honey-Mustard Dressing
Shred the broccoli up in your food processor, or buy the pre-shredded stuff at the store.
Apple Bacon Coleslaw With a Crunch
We’re not sure why it took us so long to add bacon to coleslaw, but we’re never going back.
Light and Tangy Coleslaw
This healthier coleslaw swaps out mayo for Greek yogurt, Dijon mustard and plenty of vinegar.
Jicama Fiesta Slaw
The perfect taco topper.
Warm Brussels Sprout Slaw with Coconut Bacon
Did someone say coconut bacon? We’re intrigued.
