Molasses-Cider Coleslaw

Flavored with molasses and apple cider vinegar, this crispy slaw is wonderful with our Smoked Beef Brisket. Or serve alongside a platter of barbecued ribs.

Recipe courtesy of Williams-Sonoma Kitchen.


  • 1 head green cabbage, thinly sliced
  • 1/2 head red cabbage, thinly sliced
  • Kosher salt, to taste
  • 1 cup thinly sliced green onions, white and green portions
  • 1 cup grated carrots
  • 2 tablespoons molasses
  • 3 tablespoons whole-grain mustard
  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 3 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
  • Freshly ground pepper, to taste


  • 1 In a large colander, combine the green and red cabbages. Sprinkle with salt and toss to combine. Let stand in the colander for 30 minutes to 1 hour.
  • 2 Spin the cabbages in a salad spinner to remove excess moisture. Transfer the cabbage to a large bowl. Add the green onions and carrots and toss to combine.
  • 3 In a small bowl, whisk together the molasses, mustard, mayonnaise and honey. Slowly add the vinegar and whisk vigorously to emulsify. Season the dressing with salt and pepper.
  • 4 Pour the dressing over the coleslaw and toss well to combine. Cover and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes or up to 2 hours. Toss the coleslaw again just before serving.
