I love each and every kind of cole slaw, but in the end, if I had to pick just one, I’d go for something simple, like this guy, a spicy cole slaw with a classic mayo-based dressing and a bit of a kick.

Also try Creamy Blue Cheese and Bacon Coleslaw and Kohlrabi, Green Cabbage, and Broccoli Rabe Slaw.

Spicy Cole Slaw


  • ½ cup sour cream
  • ¼ cup mayonnaise
  • 1 tablespoon milk
  • ¼ cup minced scallions
  • 2 teaspoons minced jalapeno
  • Kosher or coarse salt and freshly ground pepper to taste
  • 3 cups finely shredded cabbage
  • ¼ cup minced red onion

1. In a large bowl mix together the sour cream, mayonnaise, milk, scallions, and jalapeno. Season generously with salt and pepper. Add the red onion and cabbage and toss to blend well. Taste and adjust the seasoning.

    I am coming a little late to the coleslaw party, having always thought I didn’t like it. But I tried some recently and, to my surprise, loved it, so I was inspired to make your coleslaw with Asian style dressing (from Dinner Solved). It was a big hit. This recipe looks great, too, and I will try it soon.

    I’ve made a number of your recipes, mostly from The Mom 100, all of which have been delicious and popular with my 6 year old. I’m just getting started on Dinner Solved, but so far the Asian style slaw and the lemon-horseradish potato salad have been appreciatively received and consumed and I’ll make them again. So: thank you!

    PS One thing I would love to see in future books is recipe time estimates (prep and total).
    PPS I started this comment to let you know that the red onions were left out of the ingredient list, and then I got sidetracked thinking about your other great recipes, almost forgot about those onions.

      Thank you so much for writing, and for the nice words, and for letting me know about the onions. I HATE when that happens! Fixed now.
