A barbecue can feel incomplete without coleslaw. While there are many regional varieties of this favorite side dish, most have two things in common: cabbage and vinegar. This recipe from BBQ Pitmaster Moe Cason is perfect for barbecue spreads served outdoors, as it doesn't have any mayonnaise or cream-based ingredients that go bad quickly. From steak to veggie burgers, it complements just about any grilled food.
