Thanksgiving Slaw

Our family’s classic Thanksgiving and Christmas menu is rich. There are tons of carbs, and I’m afraid to tell you how much butter it takes to get the meal on the table. This tangy cabbage slaw is not only quick to put together and sturdy enough to sit for up to 2 hours without wilting, it’s acidity and hint of mustard help cut through the other dishes on the plate.

Asian Noodle Salad

Nostalgia for a childhood favorite (Ramen noodles) and the new habit of cabbage-based salads for dinner has introduced this to our dinner rotation. Cilantro, bell peppers, and a vinaigrette of ginger, lime, and jalapeño keep the salad fresh.

Chris’s Coleslaw

A day or two after Thanksgiving one year, when we had eaten all the turkey humanly possible, my brother, Chris, made a barbecue feast. I was never a fan of coleslaw, until I had his.
