Why This Recipe Works
Our Memphis Chopped Coleslaw recipe is studded with celery seeds and crunchy vegetables and tossed with an unapologetically sugary mustard dressing that’s balanced by a bracing hit of vinegar. Salt draws out excess moisture from the cabbage, causing it to wilt and tenderize. The cabbage became a sturdy base for our coleslaw, which can refrigerated for a day without becoming soggy. Quickly cooking the spicy dressing brought the bold components of our Memphis Chopped Coleslaw together and ensured the cabbage absorbed plenty of flavor.
