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.

Step-By-Step

1PREP/PREPARE
2THE SLAW
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.
7THE DRESSING
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.
10THE ASSEMBLY
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.
