Parmesan Cole Slaw - 52 Grilling Time Secret Extras

Pin It Now!

 Here's another in my on going quest to make the simple (and inexpensive) bagged Cole Slaw into something just a little more special... Even memorable.

And indeed this is very memorable.

A little sweet (Sugar and sweet pickle relish).

A hint of tart from the zest and juice of a lemon.

A rich nutty cheesy taste from the Parmesan cheese.

And all held together with a bit of the extraordinaire... Mayonnaise!

And once you have the slaw ready, a simple dress up tip to sprinkle some Paprika on top.  It does add hints of spice but also the contrasting colors of the bright red and bright green (wrapped in white) make for a beautiful presentation dish.

A dish perfect for just about any lunch snack or will stand proudly alongside the other dishes at any PotLuck, big family gathering, summer picnic or neighborhood pass-a-plate meal.

A delicious, beautiful upgrade for a simple inexpensive bag of Cole Slaw... Enjoy!

  OK... Here's what I did...

  • 1 Bag Cole Slaw
  • 1/2 Cup Mayonnaise
  • 1/4 Cup Sweet Pickle Relish
  • 1 TBS Sugar
