Coleslaw with a Twist

Red sweet peppers and carrots mixed with green and purple cabbage give this side dish salad color. The sweet pickle relish and Dijon mustard give it a whole NEW flavor. Your friends and family will WONDER what that Secret Ingredient is.

Our family believes in making everything with a twist of flavor. They say…” If it has no flavor than it has no Soul!!” The color is a HUGE thing with our family when eating. Combine the two of them and you have one Happy McCallum Clan.

A Southern Standard Twist to your average coleslaw !

Coleslaw with a Twist

  • 1/2 cabbage head, cut into chunks
  • 1/4 red cabbage, shredded
  • 1/2 red sweet bell pepper, chopped
  • 1/2 large carrot, chopped
  • 1 stalk of celery, chopped
  • 1/2 cup real mayonnaise

  1. Using a food processor, gently process the red sweet bell pepper, celery, and carrot, being careful not to over the process.
  2. Cut 1/2 of the green cabbage (only) into chunks and place in the food processor and process lightly, making sure the cabbage doesn’t become over processed.
  3. Slice the remaining cabbage thinly. Mix the cabbage together with the processed vegetables.
  4. In a separate bowl, add shredded purple cabbage and mix the remaining ingredients together . Allow to stand for a few minutes.
  5. Combine the mayonnaise mixture with the vegetables and toss.
  6. Chill for 1 hour.

Note– You may also use bagged shredded cabbage, and omit the food processor stage.
