12-Second Coleslaw

Recipe by  

"When people think of coleslaw, they think of that bowl of soggy, shredded cabbage sitting at the end of the picnic table. This is a completely different approach; a fresh-shredded cabbage prepared as a fast (12 seconds adding ingredients, 30 seconds to mix), crisp, low-cal, low-carb, slightly spicy, and delicious side dish that you should be eating as part of your regular veggie side-dish rotation. Serve immediately after mixing."

  • Cook's Note:
  • I didn't because I only had 12 seconds, but you can certainly add any finely shredded raw vegetables to this coleslaw so yours won't look as boring as mine.

Used Thousand Island Dressing III from AR and added some chile paste for the hot sauce. This had just the right amount of heat and right amount of tang from the mellow rice vinegar. I really have never seen angel hair-style shredded cabbage, just tried to thinly slice some green cabbage and threw in a little shredded carrot. This one’s a “no brainer” folks, we enjoyed it.

we love cole slaw and their are plenty of terrific ones here. I don't care for 1000 island dressing, but had some to use up. I made this last night to serve with the baked Maryland crab cakes ( from here ) and oven roasted asparagus. I did increase the tobasco( to hot ) and had to add a pinch of sugar to it. after sitting in the refrigerator a couple hours, it was terrific! wife ate all the left-overs after I went to bed.

I liked this pretty well. Served it with Chef John's sloppy joes (which is excellent!). I shredded my own cabbage with a little bit of carrot. The dressing has a nice kick to it. Simple and good recipe. Thanks!
