Jazzy Coleslaw

Jazzy ColeslawWho doesn’t like coleslaw? Come on. A show of hands, please.  Jazz Hands.  Ah-cha-cha-cha-CHA!

(Hey, you – over there – go wash up!)

And, its summer.  Coleslaw only runs a scant second behind potato salad for summer salads and picnic food. I used to think that coleslaw came in one variety. You know, the mayonaisse variety.

Until recently.

One of my favorites has been an Apple Cider Vinegar Slaw that is served at a little fish place that we frequent.


Then I saw a recipe of Christy Jordan’s from Southern Plate Magazine and I knew I had fallen deep in love.

This is a jazzy mustard and vinegary kinda slaw that I just know you will love.

I should name this the “Sandy Coleslaw”.  She’s my cousin and she sings fabulous jazz standards with a jazz band.  She’s pretty jazzy, too.


Check out my recent recipe for Jazzy Coleslaw.  Made especially for those of you who don’t like mayo-type coleslaws.

You know who you are. . . . Kody.

I also love my vintage red Pyrex mixing bowl.  I have the set.  Thank you, Momma.

I’ll bet this slaw has a nice little zip to it. I’m a fan of both varieties of slaw, mayo and vinegar. Yours sounds yummy and I enjoyed your post. You always make me laugh!

It is delicious! I just made it again – and I’m sure I’ll be making it again and again! I love it! And glad you always get a giggle!

You are too much! I like KFC coleslaw and the copycat recipe and that’s it! But I have to say this is quite pretty.

This sounds great! I love the idea of no mayo!

Thanks so much, Jayne! It is really delicious and a nice change of pace.
