Southern Sweet Cole Slaw Dogs

I'm sharing one of my favorite Summer Grilling Recipes – Southern Sweet Cole Slaw Dogs with you as I participated in a campaign on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Heinz Vinegar. I received a product sample to facilitate my review and as a thank you for participating.


Summer is in full force here in east Tennesee.  Even though most schools are already back in session in our part of the country, temperatures are unwavering and the east Tennessee humidity in August says that Summer isn't anywhere close to being done.  To my family that means… it's grilling season!


We grill pretty much all year around, but in the Summer it's just so convenient.  You don't freeze when going in and out while cooking, you don't heat up your house even more by cooking in the kitchen, and it's just more fun to cook food outside, right?!  Not to mention the taste of a deliciously grilled hamburger! 

Today I'm sharing with you one of my favorite Grilling Sides.  This cole slaw recipe tastes perfect a-top a grilled hot dog, alongside a hamburger, grilled chicken breast… with really just about anything you can imagine!  Have a favorite slow cooked BBQ recipe?  Try it on that too!


What makes this recipe super unique is the bit of sugar that gives the cole slaw just a hint of sweetness and the vinegar, oh the sweet crisp of the added Unfiltered Apple Cider Vinegar.  I used to only use regular vinegar in my Cole Slaw Dressing, but now that I've tried the apple cider, I won't be switching back anytime soon!  It gives us just a little extra umph that is too good to pass up!

I don't normally do much cooking with the Apple Cider variety of Heinz Vinegars, but after checking out the newly launched Heinz Vinegar Pinterest Page – I think I just might.  Usually the vinegar in my cabinets is reserved for natural Healthy and Beauty aids… like a nice, conditioning rinse {anyone else do this?} for my hair.

I've even be reading about dabbing a bit on your T-Zone to help with breakouts.  Although the result can be a bit of an odd smell, it really does seem to work quite well!

But, let's go back to those Slaw Dogs, I promised! 


Southern Sweet Cole Slaw Dressing


What You'll Need:

  • Bag of Shredded Cabbage Cole Slaw Mix
  • 1/2 cup of Mayonnaise
  • 1/4 cup of Sugar
  • Salt & Pepper {the pepper makes this dressing really pop too – so don't skimp on it!}
  • 1/8 cup of Heinz Unfiltered Apple Cider Vinegar

Sure, you can shred your own cabbage, but I hardly ever do.  Maybe if we start growing cabbage in our organic garden, I'll start!

Mix all of your dressing ingredients together and then pour on top of your cabbage and mix together.  The original recipe, passed down from my Mom, was double the ingredients, but I found that after being refrigerated, the slaw was just too wet for my tastes.  If this one seems to dry for you, simply double everything.


The cole slaw is ready to eat immediately, but definitely tastes better after it's been refrigerated for a bit of time – at least an hour, so the cabbage can soak up that sweet and tangy Southern Sweet Cole Slaw Dressing you just made!


What's your favorite Grilling Side to serve?

    I have been dying to find a recipe that I can make with my sausages. I like this recipe for Southern Sweet Cole slaw dogs. I am going to make this. I like the slaw recipe and it sounds so delicious.
