The Technique

Alabama Cole Slaw

A classic Alabama-style white barbecue sauce serves as the base for this summer side dish must as it pairs beautifully with ribs, steak kabobs & smoked specialties. The vinegar gives it just the right amount of twang while the mayonnaise provides a creamy texture. White barbecue sauce originated in North Alabama & it was originally intended to slather over smoked chicken but the flavorful blend of spices makes it an ideal contender for barbecue sandwiches, rollups, baked potatoes & even drizzled over mixed greens. Alabama Cole Slaw may be topped over cheeseburgers, hot dogs & grilled chicken sandwiches which adds delicious flavor & undeniable crunch. Learn how to make this southern classic in your very own kitchen.

How To Make Alabama Cole Slaw

A little lemon zest is a wonderful way to add fresh notes to Alabama Cole Slaw even though it’s not included in the ingredient list. A microplane grater makes the task easy. A smidgen of sugar mellows the intense spice & vinegar notes. Expect the slaw to release a little liquid after blending.
