Asian Coleslaw

A great twist on cabbage salad. The peanut butter in the dressing is the secret.

Spicy Southwestern Slaw

Rating: 4.5 stars 152
Great topping for tacos--also a nice side dish for any type of Mexican or Tex-Mex entree! Hint: The measurements are approximate- I usually make this without any. You can use green or purple cabbage, or a combination of the two. Same goes for green or red bell peppers. For extra heat, use an additional jalapeno pepper.

Angie's Dad's Best Cabbage Coleslaw

An absolutely delicious coleslaw, more tart and tangy than the creamy kind. Can make this up to 2 weeks ahead of serving and it only gets better.

Ramen Cabbage Salad

Rating: 4.5 stars 183
This salad is fast and easy to prepare but does not hold well and is best if eaten immediately!

Cilantro-Lime Coleslaw

Rating: 5 stars 169
This recipe is very flexible, meaning that I rarely remember to put all of the same ingredients/proportions in twice, and it still tastes great.

Sweet Coleslaw

Rating: 5 stars 48
Adding a little orange juice to make the dressing a little sweeter. This recipe easily makes enough for 10 people or more. If it's on the thin side, add another 1/2 cup of mayonnaise. If it's too thick, thin with more orange juice.

Creamy Coleslaw

Always a winner. Great for a barbeque or potluck dinner.

Japanese-Style Cabbage Salad

Rating: 4.5 stars 59
This fabulous salad recipe is comparable to what is served in Japanese restaurants. It's vegan and tastes great! It goes well with traditional Japanese foods and also with American foods instead of coleslaw.

Quick and Easy Kimchi Salad

Rating: 4.5 stars 8
Spicy salad, goes great with Oven Kahlua Pig. The longer it sits in the refrigerator, the bolder the flavor gets.

Taco Slaw

Rating: 4.5 stars 74
The local taco truck serves their chicken tacos with cabbage, cilantro and lime. This is my attempt to recreate their taco toppings.

Mango Cilantro Slaw

Rating: 5 stars 38
This is different twist on cabbage slaw. It's very easy and the mango and honey make it sweet; no sugar in this recipe! Great by itself or wrap a corn tortilla around grilled tilapia and top with this cilantro slaw for a great-tasting fish taco! For a bit thicker dressing you can add additional mayonnaise.
