Italian Coleslaw is a twist on the classic backyard bbq side dish. Zesty & flavorful, this coleslaw recipe is sure to be a favorite all summer long.
My family sure loves to switch things up in the kitchen. It really doesn’t matter what it is, they are always looking for a fresh twist on the foods we make, even if those foods are classics. Take our standard garlic coleslaw recipe for example. They really wanted to add it to another dish that I have coming up for you here soon. But they wanted a little more bite & zing than just the garlic would give. So the hubs started pulling things out of the fridge & a whole lot of mixing & chopping was going on. Then this gorgeous Italian Coleslaw was the end result. It’s it just so pretty?

Honestly, I really think that he was just itching to use the new knives that finally arrived. We had ordered them what seemed like forever ago. But with all that has been happening around here, we sort of forgot about them. Then one day they arrived & it was like “ohhhh, what can I make with these?” So since we had just picked up a whole bunch of fresh produce, I think he was inspired.
- ½ head cabbage
- ½ head purple cabbage
- 1 cup shredded carrots
- 2 tbsp black pepper
- 2 tbsp minced garlic
- 1 tbsp kosher salt
- 1 tbsp minced onions
- ½ cup creamy Italian dressing
- ½ cup shredded parmesan cheese
- Rough chop cabbage into thin strips
- Toss in a large bowl with remaining ingredients until fully combined & all ingredients are coated with dressing
- Refrigerate 20 minutes before serving
This really is the perfect side dish to serve with EVERYTHING!
