    Cabbage is one of the most healthy vegetables you can eat.The crucifrous veggies are great cancer fighters.
    I have alot of recepies for slaws. The tried and true southern style is simply shredded slaw with carrots if you want. Dressing can be as simple as Helman's mayo with 3 T of sweet relish and some celery seed thrown in.This may be close to S-Bones.
    My favorite slaws are cabbage chopped with an apple or 2 chopped in with mayo based dressing with honey and lots of lime juice. The other is chinese cabbage,green onion with other crispy chinese veggies of your choice. Make a real light dressing with rice vinegar.

    I've never been to Smoky Bones, so I can't say this is like their slaw. But I live in NC, right in the middle of BBQ country, and nobody can dispute the fact that NC Q is some of the best on the planet. Here's a recipe for some slaw without mayo that goes really well with any kind of BBQ you could eat, be it pulled pork, rips, chicken, or whatever.

    Mighty Good Cole Slaw

    Chop up a medium sized head of cabbage, a bell pepper, and a medium onion, and mmix it all together in a big bowl. Add some salt and pepper. (It's better if you don't put these in a food processor, or even use a grater, since slightly bigger shreds are better.)

    In a sauce pan, start out with 1and1/2 cups of water, about 1/2 cup of vinegar, 1/2 cup of sugar, about 1 tsp mustard seed, and 1 tsp celery seed. Bring this to a boil and pour over the cabbage mixture. Allow it to set for at least a couple of hours.

    NOTE: The measurements on the vinegar mixture are approximate. You can mix it up and adjust it to your own taste. But I promise you this will be good with BBQ.

    I prefer my slaw with no mayo as well. Cabbage is very good, I serve my stir fry over shredded cabbage instead of those crunchy noodles.

    Like skylar0ne said, we don't know what that restaurant's slaw is like, but here's MY favorite slaw. Don't like mayo? Don't read on!

    Pull a few leaves off a good, tight head of green cabbage. Wash, then towel dry. Cut in quarters, then cut the core out of each quarter. Slice each quarter thinly, then pick through the results to remove the few really thick pieces. If it's Viadalia onion season, prepare some of that in relatively small pieces. Combine similar amounts of mayo and sour cream. Season liberally with a better type of garlic salt like Lawry's (look for one that inclues parsley as well as sugar, which helps prevent any bitterness from the garlic), dill weed and lots of fresh ground black pepper. Add in the shredded cabbage and onion, if using. Make this kinda dry at first, as it will juice out, also why I use sour cream instead of buttermilk to make what is basically ranch dressing. Leave on the counter for about 20 minutes, then serve at once or refrigerate.

    Marie's makes a pretty good coleslaw dressing. You can find it in the produce aisle in most supermarkets - usually near the pre-chopped and bagged coleslaw/salad vegetable mixes. Convenient for those with little time to spend in the kitchen.

    Thanks to all of you for the great cole slaw recipes. Although I loved the Smokey Bones mayonaise based slaw, I look forward to trying some of your recommendations. I may find something I like even better. Again, thanks a million for your ideas. Jim

    I know this is an old question but hopefully you are still using this forum. I just experimented with trying to match the slaw at Smokey Bones. I tried their website but they don't give out recipes. Here is what I think the secret ingredient is- milk. I thinned some mayo down with milk and then added a splash of vinegar and a little sugar. Then I added some celery seed and a little celery salt. It came very close to the Smokey Bones slaw I had earlier in the day. Theirs was maybe just a little more bland, so next time I might use less vinegar and sugar. You could also try using buttermilk to thin the mayo. Try mixing these ingredients until you get the taste you want. When I figure out amounts, I will post them here.

    I do not use milk but I use a powdered coffee creamer and instead of vinegar, I use lime juice. I guess it does the same thing. I like the mayo and sugar and lotsa pepper. I also use a small amount of grated onion.

    I do not saltinitially as it seems to me that it makes the slaw behave badly. I salt upon use.

    I usually let it refrigerate several hours before use. I decorate with pimento's.

    I presalt the cabbage after grating. Place it in a collander weigh it down with a #10 can and let it sit for awhile. Then a good rinse and let dry then proceede. This helps the slaw from turning soupy, for me anyway.
    I use a mayo and plain yougut mix rather than milk, this helps also, nice and creamy. Chow Jim

    On Memorial Day went to a cookout where they had crunchy cole slaw made with sunflower kernels. It was most excellent. Shel.led sunflower kernels. Added a great texture to the slaw.

    Interesting slaw recipes!

    When I make slaw I cut half the cabbage a fine Julienne (very thin and about 1-1/2" long) and the other half I grate on a box grater. I use grated shallots instead of onion (if I have em), and sometimes use flavored vinegar (such as rasberry vinegar) instead of cider or white.
    And like Sundancer said ... I let it sit in the icebox for a good 4 hours!

    For mine, I use cabbage (NOT PURPLE)--, white onion, carrot, finely diced green bell pepper, miracle whip, white vinegar, sugar and creamy horse radish sauce to give it a little kick...sometimes I dice up the green tops of green onions for some more color.

    Tara did you ever try the Maryland Fried Chicken?

    I heard a rumor that they haven't changed their oil since they
    opened, just keep adding when it gets low!

    to add just a bit of umph to my slaw , along with the splash of vinegar and a pinch of sugar- I add a touch of prepared horseradish. I also thin out the mayo with a little milk and use celery seed, a good smoky paprika and fresh ground pepper, mixing all the ingredients together and pouring over the thinly sliced green cabbage and onions (shallots are good too, if I have them on hand).
