This recipe was given to my mother by a dear friend. I use pre-packaged slaw mix that has the carrots already in it and just add the onions. Also, I use Canola oil instead of Crisco. This can be made "days" in advance as it gets better as it sits.
We have a restaurant here in El Paso, TX called the Cattleman's Steakhouse. It is world famous for it's steaks, slaw and beans. This is my rendition of their wonderful slaw. Simple, yet mighty tasty (and fattening)! Enjoy...
This is an interesting salad. Wasabi is Japanese horseradish. I found this recipe for someone requesting in Recipe Request. You could probably add a little lime juice too to jazz up the flavors. It would go great with grilled salmon or tuna.
I usually fix this slaw when we have fresh fish. My mom always fixed this coleslaw for all the fish fries we went to. Mine is just sweeter, which is how my husband likes it! Prep time includes chilling time.
There are about as many coleslaw recipes as there are people. I myself like a variety coleslaws. I especially like the sweetness of this recipe from Paula Deen of the Food Network. The texture is also interesting as most of the ingredients are chopped in the food processor and half the cabbage is shredded. I think you can use a little more cabbage than the recipe calls for. I also like to mix in red cabbage for lots of color. (Cooking time listed is time standing in refrigerator).
