RECIPE VIDEO ABOVE.
A really great Coleslaw doesn't have tons of ingredients in it - just cabbage and carrot. It's really all about the dressing! Serve as a side salad or pile onto sandwiches. A terrific summer salad that's even better the next day. Try this on BBQ Pulled Pork Sandwiches

1. 7 cups of shredded cabbage is less than half a medium sized cabbage, 1/4 of a large one (i.e. just smaller than the size of a basketball).
2. MAKE AHEAD:
Coleslaw that's already dressed is terrific for 2 days, still very good on Day 3, and still good up to 5 days.
You can also place carrot and cabbage in a ziplock bag, squeeze out excess air then refrigerate for up to 5 days. Make the dressing and store in the fridge separately. Then dress before serving (remember to set aside to wilt!).
3. This recipe serves 6 - 8 as a side. It makes enough for one batch of the BBQ Pulled Pork Sandwiches
3. VARIATION suggestions from readers (and some from me!):
Add chopped or sliced onions
Add shallots/scallions finely sliced on the diagonal
Swap out some of the green cabbage for red cabbage (love the colour)
Granny smith apples cut into batons (YUM that would be fantastic!)
