According to a recent article in Nation’s Restaurant News, Andrew Freeman & Co. calls coleslaw the comeback kid for 2015 – beating out trendy kale salad, which is officially out for 2015.
Ethnic specialties and fusion cuisine have made coleslaw the new frontier in trendy side dishes. Depending on the taste you’re searching for, the range of bases that can be used are limitless–including zucchini, carrots, broccoli, and even melon.
Aside from a base, consider the variety of toppings that slaw can incorporate: pineapple, apples, bacon, garlic, peppers, chipotle seasonings, mango, avocado, cilantro and the list goes on. It all really depends on preferred flavor profile and the dish the slaw will accompany.
Coleslaw can also serve as more than just a side dish. Adventurous chefs are adding coleslaw to burgers and tacos, creating gourmet flavor combinations–coleslaw isn’t just a hot trend by itself!
Keep it short and sweet with Marzetti® Hawaiian Slaw as a fun side or dip for chips, or take it to the next level with Balsamic Pork Tacos with coleslaw topping and Sweet & Bold Burger with Hot Pepper Cheese and coleslaw topping..
Marzetti® Slaw Dressing is a classic and easy way to prepare recipes including Pasta Coleslaw, Red, White and Bleu Slaw and arguably the best tasting traditional slaw of all time, which some operators are now including with fries inside Panini style sandwiches, or serving alongside salsa as a dip for tortilla and pita chips.
Whatever your flavor, coleslaw is back–some call it artisan… we just call it delicious!
