Sour slaw is a southern specialty in which the cabbage is marinated in a sugar/vinegar mixture (the preparations I've liked have little or no oil), drained, then mixed with garnish vegetables before serving. A reliable version is Memphis Minnie's in San Francisco; recipe is included in this article http://www.sfgate.com/cgi-bin/article... .
However, I've recently become obsessed with duplicating the version at Highland Park Cafeteria in Dallas (which does not share any of its recipes). There is something different about the vinegar or liquid they use and also I believe it contains poppy seeds.
Can anybody help? Or, alternatively, post your own sour slaw recipes?
