Charleston Receipts Hot Slaw

Charleston Receipts  Hot  Slaw is my recipe  of the day today with  the blogging  group  From  Our Dinner Table.  The recipe comes from the classic community cookbook Charleston Receipts, by the Junior League of Charleston.

It is a variation of a type of hot slaw that I have made before, although my version was more Amish.

Essentially the shredded cabbage is quickly wilted in a pan and treated with the sweet-sour dressing.

This is a very good version, although not as piquant as the type I am  used to. For an inexpensive side dish, however, it rocks. So check out the book if you are interested.

  1. Some of the best recipes I have are from those community cookbooks. I would never have thought to cook cabbage before making slaw, but now I want to try it.

  2. Yummm! This sounds like something I would love – I pretty much will eat cabbage any which way, but a slightly wilted hot slaw salad sounds really good! I have a few of those community style cookbooks too, I love them, and the stories that come with the recipes. They were the original “bloggers”. 🙂
