summer-slaw-recipe

This summer slaw recipe was created after I tried my local deli’s summer slaw salad! Summer veggies like cucumber, tomatoes and cabbage make a light and refreshing slaw and the semi-sweet creamy dressing tops it off! 

After trying to replicate the deli version of this salad from my local grocery store, I decided to dice up a batch and somehow make it taste and look like theirs. With a successful trial, I would like to say this is very close to the store version. I really like that this is not a thick based slaw but so delightful and yet very tasty! Serve over pulled pork or as a refreshing side and enjoy!

    I’m going to try it. Sounds good but I can’t have sugar. Can you use a sugar substitute like Splenda? If so, how much.

      • Alyona’s Cooking

      Hi Terry, it’s safe to use a one-to-one ratio with Splenda to Granulated sugar for this recipe.

      Hi Toni, it’s wonderful to hear the great feedback! Which recipes were you referring to? We do have quite a collection now.

    more a question than a comment – I would think buttermilk would be good in the dressing instead of milk – any thoughts?

      • Alyona’s Cooking

      Hi Sherry, perhaps it would but not sure if it will have the soured after taste so can’t say.

    perfect copy (or better) than Kroger summer slaw – we used a package of Dole coleslaw mix – still a much more cost effective alternative and delicious – thank you – decided it’s not just for summer – served it with burgers and twice baked potatoes

      • Alyona’s Cooking

      I’m so glad to hear it was a perfect summer slaw copycat!

    ~ I love this summer slaw ‘ I by 2lbs every week from my Kroger.. I add diced celery to it, and sometimes serve it over a pineapple ring or sometimes add a can of drained pine apple bits.. I’ve had the idea when I do try and make my own is to use everything I’ve mentioned as add on ingredients, but use some of the pineapple juice to make the dressing ..need to use this recipe as my starer base.. Thank you Alyona and Bless you always..

      • Alyona’s Cooking

      I hope it tastes like the Kroger one! Thank you!
