All About the Cabbage
You may be wondering whether you have to shred your own cabbage or if you can use pre-shredded cabbage. The good news is, you have options! While fresh cabbage is preferred for its freshness, you can definitely use bagged, shredded cabbage if you’re short on time or don’t feel like shredding it yourself. You can shred the cabbage as large or as fine as you like, depending on your preference.
Wondering what dishes pair best with coleslaw? The possibilities are endless! Take it with you to a campout, a cookout, or a barbecue. It’s a fantastic topping for pulled pork sandwiches and a delightful side dish for ribs or any grilled meat. It adds the perfect tangy flavor to fish tacos, and let’s not forget how well it complements crispy, fried chicken. Coleslaw truly knows how to elevate any dish!
While coleslaw is best enjoyed fresh, it can still be delicious for up to 3 days after making it. Just make sure to store leftover coleslaw in an airtight container to maintain its freshness.
