I have to be honest, I’ve never been a fan of cole slaw. The cole slaw I grew up around was drenched in mayonnaise, completely hiding the wonderful taste of the cabbage and onions. It wasn’t until I first tried Ellwood’s World Famous Vegan Carolina BBQ sandwich topped with their vegan cole slaw that I changed my mind.
I think at that point I was hooked. From there I tried the Asian cole slaw with a heavy dosage of the sweet red cabbage and then on to Ellwood’s raw cole slaw. I officially love cole slaw now and especially the incredible health benefits of cabbage.
This curried cole slaw recipe from California’s Mustards Grill is no exception. Filled with sweet and tangy cabbage, carrots and jalapenos, it’s a modern day twist on a classic recipe. If this doesn’t get you in the mood for spring time porch lunches, nothing will.
