TIP OF THE DAY: Spicing Up Store-Bought Cole Slaw & Other Salads

If you buy store-made salads—tuna, chicken, egg, potato and macaroni salad, cole slaw and others— there’s generally room for improvement.

Add little bits of one or more accents, and you’ll have a vastly improved product.

Select two or three seasonings to layer flavor. Examples:

  • Cheese: blue cheese or feta crumbles or a garnish of shredded cheese of choice.
  • Chopped nuts: almonds, peanuts, pecans, pistachios.
  • Diced onion for flavor.
  • Diced celery for crunch.
  • Dried celery seed or toasted sesame seed for nuance.
  • Fresh tarragon, chives, basil or parsley for fresh herb flavor.
  • Heat: chili flakes, minced chiles.
  •   Basic Cole Slaw

    Turn store-bought cole slaw into something more flavorful (here’s the recipe for this slaw from Epicurious).

  • Fruit: diced apple, dried cherries or blueberries, raisins, sliced grapes, mango or pineapple.
  • Lemon or lime zest or a squeeze of lemon or lime for spark.
  • Shredded carrots or diced red bell pepper for color.
  • Tablespoon of capers, Dijon mustard, vinegar or wasabi for spice or tang.
  •  
    It’s that easy!
