This crunchy slaw is a guaranteed crowd pleaser and the dish I am expected to bring to the annual lake party for my husband’s firm. It perfectly complements the smoked meats and barbecue, and its hearty texture holds up to several hours tossed in the yummy sweet & sour vinaigrette.

No matter where else I take this slaw, I always get asked for the recipe. Folks love it. It has color, crunch, and a yummy mixture of sweet, sour, salty & tangy. A match made in heaven is this crunchy slaw with our all time favorite beef brisket you won’t believe.

The slaw calls for regular bagged coleslaw and broccoli slaw (optional). The angel hair slaw is too fine to hold up to all the ingredients, and angel hair slaw gets soggy quickly. This crunchy slaw has enough heft to last until it is eaten~which is always quickly!

The recipe below makes enough to feed 10-12 folks, so you’ll want to half it for a small family. This can also be made ahead. Ingredients can be chopped and put in individual bags, and dressing added just before serving.

If you try this crunchy slaw, let me hear what you think! I’d also love to hear any modifications or tweaks that might work for you. As always, thanks so much for stopping by. Be blessed, and stay savvy!!!
