Andy’s Amazing Coleslaw

Andy Anderson !


I just finished making about 15 pounds of this stuff, and it’s always a crowd pleaser. As a matter of fact, no matter how much of it I make, there never seems to any left over.

I’m short on photographs for this one; however, it’s a snap to assemble.

If you’re looking for a good slaw to go with that smoked brisket… this is it.

So, you ready… Let’s get into the kitchen.

How to Make Andy’s Amazing Coleslaw


  • 3Take the cabbage, cut out the hard core, and chop.
  • 4Chef’s Note: Here’s the thing… Different people like their coleslaw chopped in different ways. Some like it thickly sliced, and others finely diced. I will admit that I’m somewhere in the middle, but the good news is that it really doesn’t make any difference. Chop it up the way it will make you happy.
  • 5Optional Step: Place the chopped slaw in a colander and toss with the salt, and sugar. Let stand for about an hour, and then rinse and use a salad spinner to remove the moisture. If you choose not to do this step, then just move on as if nothing happened.
  • 6Add the coleslaw in a bowl, and then toss with the shredded carrots, poppy seeds, and toasted sesame seeds.
  • 8Whisk all the ingredients (with the exception of the parsley) together until smooth.
  • 9Chef’s Note: If you like your dressing a bit thinner, add more vinegar. If you like it a bit sweeter, add a bit of sugar. Don’t for to give it a taste or two, and adjust the ingredients accordingly.
  • 11Toss the dressing with the coleslaw, cover and refrigerate for 1 hour before serving. Enjoy.
  • 12Chef’s Note: I usually add some chopped Italian flat-leaf parsley to the top for garnish.
  • 13Keep the faith, and keep cooking.
