BBQ Coleslaw Salad

A BBQ coleslaw salad is the traditional side for a pulled pork recipe but I think a really good crunchy coleslaw works well at any barbecue cookout and can also be a great healthy option too.

I have to admit that it’s my wife who’s the “Coleslaw Queen” when it comes to barbecue accompaniments and even she will admit that it doesn’t take too much time provided you’re up for some serious grating.

We use this BBQ coleslaw salad recipe and awful lot when we're out catering and it never ceases to amaze us how many compliments we get for serving a freshly grated coleslaw. Then again having tasted some of the dire coleslaw available down my local supermarket I just had to share this one with you.

What makes my coleslaw better than shop bought?

  • Freshly shredded vegetables
  • A sauce that coats the veg rather than drowning it

You might have noticed that most food stuffs are sold by weight these days so the heavier a food technologist you can make a product the more profit the manufacturing company can make. Classic ways to add weight are with the addition of water and (worse still) sugar so is it any surprise that shop bought coleslaw is swimming in sauce?

There is actually another reason why my BBQ coleslaw salad tastes so great and that's because I don't use straight mayonnaise to bind everything together...I use Alabama white BBQ sauce.

This sample below was prepared by my young daughter and she insisted I use it for my web page. Hey, what's a father supposed to do?

OK so she made a bit of a mess

Preparation Time:- 15 mins
Cooking Time:- n/a

Total Time:- 15 mins

Ingredients:-

  • ½ white cabbage finely sliced
  • 2 carrots (grated or shredded)
  • 1 small red onion sliced
  • Small handful sultanas
  • 4 tablespoons Alabama white BBQ sauce
  • 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper

Method:-

Get a large salad bowl and throw in the grated vegetables and the sultanas and give everything a mix until you have an even distribution of colour. It's so much easier to mix everything up before you add the wet stuff.

Now add the the sauce and fold it into the mix until all the shredded vegetables have been lightly coated. To finish sprinkle the cayenne on top for color and a little extra kick!

I did say that this was a healthy option but if you want to make it lighter still then use a 50:50 split of Alabama white BBQ sauce with yogurt and to really go to town remember to use low fat yogurt.

As an optional extra, a small amount of shredded red cabbage adds a new colour dimension to the salad too.
