I like cole slaw, but not when it gets soggy. There have been many solutions to this, like salting and rinsing the cabbage. Yes, it works some, but the cabbage is still limp compared to fresh and it’s a big hassle. The solution is simple. Keep the dressing separate until serving, like we do with most other salads. “Blasphemy!” you say? Maybe, but it works.
I also add some horseradish to the dressing. You can leave it out if you want a more traditional flavor.
I think this is a great solution, Mark! I don’t like the salted cabbage style at all. I usually just make it a couple of hours ahead of time and drain. Don’t know why this never occurred to me. I’ll be trying this next time I make slaw!
