Slaw for Sandwiches

This slaw for sandwiches is a great coleslaw to use in barbecue pulled pork or pulled chicken sandwiches. Unlike our Quick n Dirty Sandwich slaw, which is vinegar-based, this creamy slaw has a touch of sweetness. Pair this slaw with any smoked meat or even fried chicken sandwiches. You’ll be glad you did!

Let’s Make It!

  • Shred the green cabbage, red cabbage, and carrots. Rinse with cold water and run through a salad spinner. Set aside.

  • Use tongs to toss vegetables in dressing. Coat well. 
  • If making this coleslaw ahead of time, cover the bowl with plastic wrap and place it into the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes before serving.

Tips:

  1. Use a coleslaw that does not include the dressing for faster assembly.
  2. If you are not a fan of celery seeds, use dill seeds in the slaw for sandwiches instead.
  3. I recommend using real mayonnaise for this coleslaw. I have not tested this recipe using a zesty sandwich spread (you know the one), so I cannot comment on how it will turn out.

Try this slaw recipe for sandwiches, skillet pulled pork nachos, pulled pork spring rolls, or use it as a side dish!
