Nat King Cole Slaw

This crispy coleslaw is named for a famous singer from the '50s. The pretty salad with flecks of green and red pepper has a creamy dressing that has a little kick from chili powder. -Judy Nix, Toccoa, Georgia

    I made this the other night and substituted rice wine vinegar since I didn't have any white wine vinegar. I'm not a big coleslaw fan but I had half a head of cabbage left over from having steamed cabbage earlier in the week. Well...this salad went fast. The girlfriend and I both hit it hard. Will definitely make it again.

    Very quick and simple but tasty. I hadn't thought of chili powder in cole's a nice addition. I was out of white wine vinegar, so used sherry vinegar..still tasted good..although the appearance wasn't so great. Good way to make use of farmer's market cabbages

    I modified this and used cider vinegar and we thought it was great. However, the description should not read "creamy", this is a vinaigrette type slaw. The chili powder is a great addition!!!
