Did you know that cole slaw became popular thanks to Richard Hellmann a NYC deli owner? His 1903 creation of a formula for bottled mayonnaise made this shredded cabbage dish a bestseller and standard ‘American Classics: Cole Slaw’, by John Mariani, Restaurant Hospitality Magazine 1/97) in America.

my boyfriend loves cole slaw - but it's not my fav. might have to give this a try!
This might be weird, but I've never actually had raisins in my cole slaw before. Are raisins a normal part of slaw that I've just been missing?
I make a similar salad with 1 bag 16oz coleslaw, 1 large bag slivered almonds (toast them on your stovetop with a bit of butter), 1 small bag sunflower seeds, 1 small jar sesame seeds, 1 bundle scallions, and 2 packages uncooked rawmen. For dressing mix together soy sauce, cider vinegar, and sugar to taste. Put the dressing on right before serving. delish!
My MIL makes a similar slaw, but substitutes raspberry vinaigrette for the mayo.
I've been looking for a good cole slaw recipe...summer is the best time to test this out! Thanks!!
Sounds like a delicious recipe! Love cole slaw with my grilled chicken :)
Adding apples and raisins into cole slaw makes it sound so sweet and delicious. The only thing I don't like about cole slaw is that I worry about eating it at an outdoor BBQ because of the heat making the mayo bad. Does anyone have any recipes for cole slaw without mayo?
I love coleslaw. I've been using it on meat sandwiches lately. So yummy!
