      Diane here's the link:

      Thanks for sharing!

      Since you highlighted Walp's (in Pennsylvania)...not quite cole slaw but here are some PA Dutch recipes for Chow Chow, Pepper Cabbage and Pepper Relish:

      Pepper Relish
      1/2 peck (4 qts.) green tomatoes
      8 red peppers
      2 or more lg. onions
      1 pt. vinegar
      1 pt. sugar
      2 sticks cinnamon
      2 tbsp. allspice
      2 tbsp. whole cloves 

      Put through a food chopper the green tomatoes, peppers and onions. Boil them for 15 minutes, then remove them from heat and add salt. Boil them again for 15 minutes. Drain through a colander. Then add the remaining ingredients. Boil the mixture rapidly, then add 1 tablespoon celery seed. Jar and seal. NOTE: Delicious on sandwiches, hot dogs, beans, etc. As an appetizer - spread crackers with cream cheese and serve with relish.

      Chow Chow
      1 c. chopped green tomatoes
      1 c. chopped bell peppers
      1 c. chopped cabbage
      1 whole cucumber, chopped
      1 c. chopped onions
      2 qt. water
      1/4 c. salt
      1 c. chopped carrots
      1 c. chopped green beans
      2 tsp. mustard seed
      2 tsp. celery seed
      2 c. vinegar
      2 c. sugar 

      Soak tomatoes, peppers, cucumber and onions overnight in water and salt. Drain. Cook carrots and green beans for 10 minutes and drain. Mix all ingredients. Heat to a boil. Pack in jars and seal.

      Pepper Cabbage
      1 head of cabbage, grated
      1/2 green pepper, chopped
      1 large carrot, grated
      1 cup sugar
      1 cup vinegar
      1 cup water pinch of salt 

      Mix the sugar, vinegar, water and salt together and pour it over the cabbage, pepper and carrot. Mix thoroughly. Tastes best if it can sit in the refrigerator for at least 1 hour.

          I keep the slaw pretty simple:

          Chopped red cabbage
          50/50 mayo and sour cream
          Pickle relish
          Finely sliced almonds
          Lime juice
          Salt and pepper

          Mix it all up to your taste.  It's good and crunchy.

            Here's the KFC recipe from one of those secret knockoff recipe books.  I make this when doing pulled pork.  A lot of people like this slaw, some don't.
             
            1/2 cup mayo
            1/3 cup sugar
            1/4 cup milk
            1/4 cup buttermilk
            2 1/2 T lemon juice
            1 1/2 T white vinegar
            1/2 t salt
            1/8 t black pepper
             
            Mix first 8 ingredients and beat with whisk until smooth
             
            Add:
             
            8 cups cabbage
            1/4 cup shredded carrots
            2 T minced onion
             
            Mix well.  Cover and refridgerate for at least 2 hours.
             
            Serves 10-12.

              I always add a pinch of horseradish to my slaw liquid before mixing with the cabbage- and some paprika- the sweet,smoky kind. Otherwise it's pretty much like the KFC with a little less sugar and no lemon juice. And of course not so much, in the way of quantity, since there are only two of us!

                This is somewhat related - I recently had a fish taco -  which I've never eaten before - and it was fantastic - a chunk of grilled fish nestled in a cruncy corn tortilla with what looked to be a slaw made with shredded purple cabbage.  It wasn't overly spicy, but had just a little kick to it which I asked where it came from.  The vendor mentioned he had made a remoulade sauce for the slaw.  There's all kinds of recipes for remoulade and I'm guessing it was a white remoulade made with a mayonaise base, which would make a great cole slaw on it's own.

                  I'm not sure of the actually recipe, but a local restaurant serves up a no-mayo coleslaw which is absolutely yummy!  It has an oil/vinegar mix with black pepper. :)

                    Cole Slaw with Pomegranate

                    Take half of the cabbage and slice it thinly, then grate the other half on the large holes of a box grater.

                    The dressing is
                    Mayo
                    Raspberry vinegar
                    sugar
                    all to taste

                    Add pomegranate seeds.  For 2 cups of cabbage I'd add about 1/2 cup to 3/4 cup of pomegranate seeds.

                    The texture of the seeds complements the crunchy cabbage perfectly and the taste and color of the pomegranate really makes this cole slaw spectacular.

                    This is a great, fruity cole slaw in the summer if you can find pomegranates at that time of year ... or in the Christmas season, makes a perfect, colorful holiday slaw.

                          Not much to mine. Sweet and simple.

                        1 large head cabbage julienned, salted and in a strainer
                        2 large carrots, shredded and soaked 1 hour in ice water

                        Dressing:
                        1/2 cup mayo of choice (Helmans)
                        1/2 cup sour cream
                        1/8 cup cider vinegar
                        1/8 cup super fine white sugar
                        1 tsp. celery seed crushed
                        1/2 tsp. caraway seed (optional)
                        fresh ground pepper to taste

                        Rinse the cabbage and carrots thoroughly and spin or pat dry. Mix dressing and let set one or two hours before dressing the greens.

                          I'm surprised that nobody mentiioned this yet, but like was posted earlier, salt does draw out the moisture. That can be used to your advantage where you can pre-salt the slaw to draw out the liquid, rinse, then add your dressing for a creamy, but undiluted texture. That was a trick that was used in a slaw that I used to love made with a cream based dressing with celery seed. I don't know the recipe, but the slaw was "drawn" with salt b4 hand.

                          Regarding the KFC clones. Here's a hint. Make the dressing to the recipe BUT substitute the vinegar with tarragon vinegar and the black pepper with white pepper. As for the onion, replace with 1 TBSP dried, minced onion.  Minced,not the flakes.

                          Yes, it's a hint....hint,hint

                            What no jalapeno slaw?

                            Shredded cabbage
                            Shredded carrot
                            Chopped jalapeno
                            Chopped cilantro
                            Thin shredded onion
                            Diced Avocado (Optional)

                            Dressing:
                            Cider vinegar

                              OH, YES, Llulu!
                              MY Spicy Jalapeno Slaw:
                              About 12 years ago, I was making cornbeef (as usual) for St. Patrick's Day, and decided to make slaw instead of Brussels sprouts (which, by the way, are very tasty cooked in a reduction of the corned beef stock). I used some bags of a pre-shredded mix, so it had green and red cabbage and shredded carrots. Then a little bit o mayo, vinegar, 4,000 garlic cloves, 4,000 jalapenos, and a bunch (as in "bunch") of cilantro. Well.... maybe not 4,000, but a WHOLE LOT. As usual, I don't have a specific measurement guide, I just give it the ole' "hairy eyeball". (What underground comic is that from? Or is it from something else???) ie.: Like you, "Sorry I don't have exact amounts. I cook by sight and taste."
                               
                              And... THEN... I started working at the Food Emporium here in DullAss, and one day I was feeling puny & not-in-the-mood-to-cook, so I bought some of the "Asian Cole Slaw", & it's been a staple on my shopping list ever since...

                              "FE" Asian Slaw Ingredients
                              Napa Cabbage
                              Carrots
                              Red Bell Pepper
                              Snow Peas
                              Daikon Radish
                              Green Onions
                              Jalapeno Peppers
                              Cilantro
                              Rice Wine Vinegar
                              Peanut Oil
                              Fish Sauce
                              Sugar
                              Water
                              Lime Juice
                              Sambal Olek

                              Those are the stated ingredients of this absolutely fabulous slaw; All finely julienned/sliced into a wonderful melange that well accompanies Mexican/Texican/Asian/Southern cuisines of all kinds. I love it HOT so I liberally accentuate it with Asian Chili-Garlic Paste (the NON sugared kind)

                                I have a slaw dressing that I have used for years. It is quite different and more savory than sweet. Great with Barbecue and Boiled Shrimp. I like to use fresh shredded green cabbage and shredded carrots for color. This recipe is for about 1/2-3/4 head of cabbage, depending on size.

                                1 cup mayo (I use Hellman's)
                                1/3 cup whole grain mustard (Zatarains)
                                1/4 cup poupon mustard
                                two pinches sugar
                                1 tbsp. (or more) dried dill
                                Lots of freshly ground pepper.

                                  2 Tablespoons honey
                                  1 Tablespoon fresh lemon juice
                                  ½ teaspoon ground ginger
                                  Salt and freshly ground black pepper

                                   
                                  Drain the pineapple. Reserve 1/3 cup of the juice. Cut the chunks, if using, into small ¼-inch pieces.
                                   
                                  In a 3-quart, rigid plastic lidded container, layer the pineapple bits, fruit pieces, and carrots. Top with a layer of cabbage and walnuts.
                                   
                                  In a jar with a tight-fitting lid or similar container, combine the oil, honey, lemon juice, ginger, and reserved pineapple juice. Cover tightly and shake well.
                                  Pour the dressing over the salad without stirring. Cover the slaw and refrigerate for several hours or overnight.
                                   
                                  Just before serving, toss well. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
                                   
                                  Serves 4-6.

                                        To paraphrase the Terry Hatcher character in Seinfeld and about the above slaw recipe, "it's

                                        real and it's spectacular." Great crunch and not too sweet. I'd highly recommend.
