Here in the south not only do we serve coleslaw as a side dish, but we also serve it on hot dogs, hamburgers, and barbecue sandwiches. This is just a simple, plain and very mild coleslaw that is perfect for these types of sandwiches. It's also wonderful served as a side with pinto beans, fried chicken, or whatever you like. It's also very quick to make because you make it in your Ninja, Vitamix, or you can also make it in a regular blender. I used to make it in my Oster blender until I got my Ninja. Now I just pulse a few times and it's ready. I hope you enjoy this simple slaw.

How to Make Southern Style Quick Coleslaw

Step-by-Step

  1. Peel outer leaves from cabbage and cut into fourths. Remove core and cut into smaller pieces.
  2. Place about 1/3 to 1/2 of the cut pieces into a Ninja, Vitamix, or a blender and add water to cover. Pulse a few times until cabbage is shredded.
  3. Pour into a large strainer to drain off water. Repeat with remaining cabbage. Once all of the cabbage has been shredded and placed in the strainer, press out excess liquid using the back side of a spoon.
  4. While the drained cabbage is still in the strainer, sprinkle with salt. Mix in vinegar and sugar. Let stand for about 10 to 15 minutes.
  5. Using the back side of a spoon, press out any additional liquid. Once cabbage is fairly dry, transfer into a large bowl. Spoon in mayonnaise, as much or as little as you desire and mix well. Sprinkle with pepper (if desired), cover and refrigerate for at least one hour. Serve as a side or on hot dogs, hamburgers or pork barbecue sandwiches. Enjoy!
