Dolly Parton's Secret Coleslaw Ingredient Is A Game-Changer
The 11-time Grammy winner Dolly Parton is also credited for her contribution to the 1989 cookbook “Dollywood Presents Tennessee Mountain Home Cooking,” which includes her own coleslaw recipe. It includes the usual ingredients for a traditional coleslaw, like mayonnaise and white vinegar, as well as one other ingredient that you’d never expect.
This unexpected ingredient in Dolly Parton’s coleslaw is the leftover juice in an empty pickle jar. Epicurious points out that the leftover pickle juice creates a contrast to the creamy ingredients of the coleslaw and introduces a briny flavor.
Parton’s love for pickle juice in coleslaw is also shared in coleslaw recipes by celebrity chef Michael Symon and Southern Bite. Just remember to add the pickle juice in balance with the other ingredients so that the pickle flavor doesn’t take over the whole dish.
