On the Grill: Summer Slaw

While you don't necessarily grill the slaw itself, it makes for a wonderful side dish for almost any grilled meat, be it ribs, sausage or even fish. I love the creamy dressing and the sweetness that the corn adds to the slaw.

My favorite way to eat it is in a BBQ sandwich with a little Tiger Sauce on top. Mmm....

Summer Slaw

4 large ears of corn
1 lb bag shredded cabbage mix
2/3 cup mayonnaise (or Miracle Whip *gag* if you prefer more tang)
2 T white vinegar
4 T white sugar (or sugar substitute)
salt and pepper to taste

1. Grill (or blanch) the corn. Cool and cut from cob.
2. Place cut corn and cabbage mix together in a large bowl.
3. Whisk next 3 ingredients in a small bowl until combined.
4. Add to corn/cabbage and toss well.
5. Salt/pepper to taste.
6. Cover and refrigerate for at least an hour (or overnight), stirring occasionally.

That looks so good! I have never had corn in coleslaw before.

It's a good thing I'm going grocery shopping today, otherwise I'd HAVE to make a special trip to get some ingredients. I am in the mood for a BBQ! :)

Hmmm... Sounds interesting. Can't promise I'll try it though cuz' I'm not a big coleslaw person :)

In answer to your question I have no idea why they make those bumps on a slide. Don't ever try them though, your back would not thank you (Can you tell I speak from experience here?).

I've never seen corn in a cole slaw before! Is that a southern thing?
