Don’t knock it until you try it! A crispy, classic mayo based coleslaw with a hint of smoked flavor. Even my wife that’s not a big fan of coleslaw likes this delicacy!
You can either go the quick route and buy a coleslaw mix in the prepackaged lettuce section of your supermarket, and coleslaw dressing with the salad dressings, or make your own. In this example, I bought a bag of coleslaw mix that I tossed with a bag of broccoli slaw mix to add some color, while I made the dressing from scratch.
To make the slaw, shred the following:
- 1 head green cabbage
- 1 head purple cabbage
- 2 carrots
Lay the shredded slaw out on perforated pans and smoke at the lowest setting on your smoker for about 30 minutes, until the cabbage just starts to take on a bit of the smoked color. Remove from the smoker and toss in the dressing. To make your own, mix the following:
- 1 1/2C mayonnaise
- 1/4 C white vinegar
- 1t celery seed
- 1t sugar
- 1t salt
- 1t pepper
You can serve it as-is, or for best results, refrigerate overnight to allow the flavors to meld. Top with thinly sliced scallions before serving.
