I know it's easy enough to prepare at home, but, sometimes, I just want to pick up a couple or for quarts to take home.

Houston has cole slaw everywhere: groceries, seafood houses, BBQ joints. I'm almost always disappointed.

I don't want diced cabbage limp and drowning in mayo and sweeteners.

I actually like cabbage, and I prefer my slaw shredded thick, with lots of bite and crunchiness, light on the dressing (vinegar and little mayo).

May be blasphemy, but I've come close to my ideal at Pappa's BBQ and Rudy's BBQ.

Interested in any other suggestions.

P.S. Fixing to post a similar inquiry about potato salad.
