It is not often people make coleslaw the main entre. It is such a great accompaniment to other foods.

Who hasn't tried the famous Memphis habit of topping a pulled pork sandwich with coleslaw?

What about adding it to the top of a cheeseburger? There are many ways to enjoy coleslaw, but if you make a good one there is nothing wrong with just digging in with a spoon.

This is a recipe I got from Biloxi fireman Max Igich, and he likes to use it to top his famous fish tacos. Give it a try and it is sure to become your favorite.


2, 10 oz packages of angel hair cut red or regular cabbage

1/4 cup white vinegar

1/4 cup sugar

1 cup mayonnaise

1/2 teaspoon celery seed

Combine all the ingredients, and mix well. Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes before serving. Remember to re-mix before serving as the liquids like to separate. Serve chilled.
