Coleslaw Topping for Pulled Meat Sandwiches

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Tom Collins

I can remember my mother making this in the late 50's. She got the recipe from a local V.F.W. Auxiliary that she was a member of. My family enjoys it. If you try it and can improve on it, let us know. Thanks.

I followed the recipe except only used 1/2 sweet relish because that's all I had. It was a little bitter for our taste and a strange combination of flavors. Sorry - but not one of my favorites.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Chop cabbage, onion and pimento by whatever method you are comfortable with.
  2. Put the chopped ingredients into a suitable sized bowl and add the sweet relish.
  3. Combine the rest of the ingredients in a separate bowl and whisk until the sugar is somewhat dissolved.
  4. Add this mixture to the cabbage mixture and combine well.
  5. Can use right away or allow to set for a bit to let the ingredients meld a little better.
  6. You want it to be a little bit 'juicy', not dry. The juice will work it's way down into the meat.
  7. Scoop some onto a pulled meat sandwich (beef, pork or ham) and enjoy.
