It’s grilling season so you know what that means… literally everything goes on the grill. This grilled coleslaw recipe is the perfect remix to the regular, soggy coleslaw we have all been eating.
We spent Easter weekend at my fiance’s house in The Woodlands. Usually going to my future in-laws means cooking and eating good food, drinking amazing wines and relaxation at its finest. I am so blessed and fortunate that I am marrying into a second family whom I love so much. I know not everyone is lucky enough to get along with or even like their in-laws, but I am SO happy that I do.
I have to give credit to my fiance who had the brilliant idea of grilling the cabbages before assembling the coleslaw recipe. The char on the cabbage gives the coleslaw a new, robust flavor that you wouldn’t expect from “boring” coleslaw. The grilled cabbage combined with the raw, crunchy carrots & jalapeños and mixed with the creamy & tangy dressing makes for a party of flavors in your mouth.
I highly recommend giving this recipe a try at your next grill out!
For this recipe you will need:
1 head green cabbage, cut into quarters, stems attached
1 head purple cabbage, cut into quarters, stems attached
2 large carrots, julienned
4 jalapenos, julienned
1 cup mayonnaise
1 Tbsp white vinegar
1 Tbsp fresh lime juice
Half bunch of fresh cilantro, chopped
Salt & Pepper to taste
- First things first… fire up the grill!
- Rub the quartered cabbages with olive oil and a sprinkle of salt & pepper. *The reason you want to keep the stem on when grilling is so they don’t fall apart easily.*
- Once the cabbage has received a nice char on all sides, remove from the grill and allow to cool.
- In a medium bowl, combine the mayonnaise, white vinegar, lime juice, freshly chopped cilantro & a sprinkle of salt and pepper.
- Cut the cabbage into thin strips. In a large bowl, combine the cabbage with the carrots and jalapeños.
- Pour the mayo mixture over the veggies and toss until all vegetables are evenly coated.
- Season with salt & pepper to taste.
So simple, yet so delicious. Happy grilling!
