This tasty recipe was give to me by a friend whose ancestors were from Norway. I especially enjoy bringing this salad dish to family get-togethers since I can make it days ahead. A pint of it also makes a nice gift.
Families will love this crisp, fresh-tasting and tangy slaw from our Test Kitchen. Packed with nutritious ingredients, it’s a pretty, sweet-and-sour summer side that’s perfect for picnics, potlucks or patio parties.
The combination of caraway and orange keeps this slaw from being anything but run-of-the-mill. I always get requests to bring a big batch to potlucks; proof positive that it's a keeper! I also like to make it a day ahead so the flavors can truly blend. —Lily Julow, Gainesville, Florida
With its flavorful dressing and flecks of tomato and green pepper, this pretty coleslaw is great for a variety of summertime meals. Instead of purchasing the broccoli coleslaw mix, you can use broccoli stalks—just peel them, then shred in a food processor. You’ll want about 3 cups for this recipe.
"This tangy sweet side dish is so tasty, you can add just a pinch of salt or non at all," says Susan Skinner-Martin of Sandusky, Ohio. "It's a favorite at picnics and potlucks. For fun, try varying the fruits by substituting apples, cherries or raisins."
My sister-in-law gave me this recipe over 50 years ago and it's still a hit at potluck dinners. I made it for company once, and they came by the next day with a large head of cabbage, hoping to exchange it for the recipe.
