Caesar Red Coleslaw

"There are a ton of coleslaw recipes out there, and I'm sure each of us believes that they make the best! Well, here's one to throw into the pot! lol No matter who's tastes the best, they all share a common problem, becoming soggy. One way would be to put the dressing on at the last minute, especially when it's traveling.When I make my cole slaw, I don't chop or shred it real fine or shred it too small. .The cabbage doesn't stand up to the dressing.This coleslaw is not only beautiful and festive, but it's also delicious! Note**I don't salt my slaw or dressing until it goes to the table; I find that the salt leeches out the moisture and can become too "wet"."

    LOVE THIS! I am so pleasantly surprised by how tasty this coleslaw is! I would never have dreamed of using ceasar dressing in a coleslaw. It's delicious! The dressing itself is also absolutely wonderful and I will be using that on other salads. I skipped the carrots but only because I was out of them. I'll add them next time. Thanks, FLUFFSTER for another keeper.

    Delicious coleslaw, and only gets better with chilling time, I used a small package coleslaw mix, used 3 green onions, increased the Tabasco slightly, I also added in 1/4 cup buttermilk to the mayo mixture, this is very good, thanks for another winner Di!


I would like to welcome you to my recipes. I have been with since 10/05. My beloved husband, Tom, passed away 3 years ago. My world stopped. It's taken me all this time to find my way back to life without him. I have been so blessed to have found my second, once in a lifetime. I've met an amazing man who is so good to me. We moved from Las Vegas, Nevada to Bullhead City, Az. in February, and we love it here. I have worked at Bally's and Paris hotel.casinos, in Las Vegas. I have seen some very famous entertainers, including Liza Minnelli, Penn and Teller, Ray Liotta, Dr. J (Julius Erving), Frank Sinatra and his wife Barbara Marx. and many, many more. Cooking is my passion, and I am slowly, but surely beginning to venture into the world of baking. To me, cooking is so much easier because baking is so much more exact. I love to make Italian and Mexican food the best, followed by Chinese and last, but by far the least, good old American food! How can you beat chicken fried steak, mashed potatoes and gravy?? I love to find several recipes and put my own spin on them and create a new recipe.
