Growing up, my Aunt Eleanor was in charge of making the coleslaw for holiday dinners, picnics or just when ever we requested it. This was another family recipe of hers. Most times we would forget to put it out on the table until the meal was almost over – a thing that became a
running joke tradition in our house. I do not know what exactly she put in it or how much and I have only had slaw from one other place that was an exact match. I do not ever try to make her version myself because I don’t want to build myself up just to be let down.
A few years ago, I came across this recipe in Food Network Magazine for a jerk turkey burger and mango chutney slaw. Although I only made the burger once, I fell in love with the slaw. My husband likes it so much that he will put in special requests to have a batch in the fridge at any given time. This has become my go-to for picnics too. I have served this with not just turkey burgers but also on beef burgers, hot dogs and pulled pork. I LOVE slaw on my pulled pork sandwiches. If you have never combined the two, I highly suggest you try it! Since we are having ham this Easter, I decided we need coleslaw to go with it, just like when I was a kid. I also thought I would share this with you fine people.
Tips: I hand slice the cabbage because I like it extra thin. I also use hot mango chutney because I do not think it’s hot and adds a bit more flavor. Mild is just as good though.
