A mixture of spices is the key to Memphis Slaw that's combined with mayo and tossed with coarsely chopped cabbage, green bell pepper, and diced red onion.

How to Make It

Whisk together brown sugar, kosher salt, paprika, dry mustard, oregano, freshly ground black pepper, granulated garlic, ground coriander, and onion powder in a bowl. Whisk in mayonnaise and vinegar until sugar dissolves. Cut cabbage into thick slices; cut slices crosswise. Fold cabbage, bell pepper, and red onion into mayonnaise mixture until coated. Let stand 1 hour before serving, tossing occasionally.

Absolutely wonderful coleslaw recipe. I don't like coleslaw. I rarely even eat it, except when a friend makes it and I don't want to hurt their feelings. I made this for my husband and son because they love coleslaw. The dressing is different than any I've ever tried. Spectacular, unique flavor! See my adaptation of this recipe here:
