7 Summer Slaws That Put the Store-Bought Stuff to Shame

by in Healthy Recipes, June 9, 2016

If there’s one thing we’ve learned from season after season of summer grilling, it’s that you should never underestimate the power of a good slaw to transform your meal. Crisp and cool, with a subtle vinegar kick, a fresh slaw can add great texture and flavor depth to almost any summer dish — tacos, burgers, and, most of all, pulled pork. On the other hand, if your slaw isn’t up to par, it can really drag a dish down. Pre-packaged coleslaw from the deli counter at your local grocery store may be convenient, but more often than not, you’re getting some wilted green cabbage swimming in a tub of watered-down mayonnaise and sugar. Next time you’re planning a picnic or cookout, try one of these healthy homemade slaws. We guarantee you’ll never go back to store-bought.

What’s cool and crunchy and delicious all over? Slaws made with cabbage (or broccoli, or kale or any other vegetable you feel like shredding) are one of summer’s great ways to showcase produce. And the side dish doesn’t necessarily have to involve loads of mayo — but used in moderate amounts, the creamy condiment can still be a part of a healthy slaw. Here, Bobby, Guy, and Rachael go without mayonnaise, Ellie combines it with Greek yogurt, and Melissa uses just a tablespoon. Which version is your favorite?

The hot, sticky summer we know and love here in New England has finally come. I’ve tucked away my oven mitts and am giving my stove the rest of the season off. So how do I keep cool with my food? I slice up a coleslaw — a cabbage slaw, a broccoli slaw, you name. And guess what? No mayo!
