    I made this on our last fishing trip and it was pretty darned good so I thought I'd post it here in case you need a salad to go with your 4th of July BBQ.

    1 med. head green cabbage, coarsely chopped
    1 finely chopped shallot
    2 carrots, shredded, chopped or julienned
    1 c. craisins
    1 tsp. salt
    1 tsp. dry mustard
    2 TBS. apple cider vinegar
    1 C. mayonnaise

    Combine cabbage, shallot, carrots and craisins in a large serving bowl.
    In a small bowl combine salt, dry mustard and vinegar and pour over cabbage mixture. Mix well. Add the mayonnaise and mix again.

    Enjoy!

    I've made that one with 1/2 red cabbage, 1/2 regular cabbage and 16oz can of pineapple as well, I like the shallot idea.

    The cabbage combo sounds good. I'm not a big fan of pineapple but I have also done it with red grapes in place of the craisins.

    Taste is taste, but apples are good in coleslaw.

    Since it seems there's a desire to stray from the conventional, here's a favorite I picked up from one of the yiji on my last visit to the "Won Ton Ye Pleasure Palace and Rice Emporium".:rofl:

    ****Madame Woo's Oriental Idaho Coleslaw****

    6 tablespoons rice wine vinegar
    6 tablespoons vegetable oil
    5 tablespoons creamy peanut butter
    3 tablespoons soy sauce
    3 tablespoons brown sugar
    2 tablespoons minced fresh ginger root
    1 1/2 tablespoons minced garlic

    5 cups thinly sliced green cabbage
    2 cups thinly sliced red cabbage
    2 cups shredded napa cabbage
    2 red bell peppers, thinly sliced
    2 carrots, julienned
    6 green onions, chopped
    1/2 cup chopped fresh cilantro

    1. In a medium bowl, whisk together the rice vinegar, oil, peanut butter, soy sauce, brown sugar, ginger, and garlic.
    2. In a large bowl, mix the green cabbage, red cabbage, napa cabbage, red bell peppers, carrots, green onions, and cilantro. Toss with the peanut butter mixture just before serving.
    :thumb::thumb::thumb:

    If ya find a noodle in it, don't pay for it either!:rofl:

    WTF is that!!! The Thai/California version of coleslaw? And I didn't say "raisins", I said "craisins"!

    Mumbles, I will make the slaw for the upcoming ventures. And Mark ain't gettin' any!:rofl::rofl:

    I'm with Mark on this one, and for me you can also ditch the mayo - I'm much more of a vinegar guy (as you can tell from my sunny disposition)

    Somebody help me out here! They're ganging up on me!

    I like a real vinegary coleslaw as a topping on a sandwich, like pulled pork, but I like the mayo version as a side salad. And I'll add fruit if I damned well please!:rofl:
