    Who the heck puts onion in their Cole slaw?

    At a fakish Irish pub in Chicago and I’m disappointed. The fish and chips were pretty good, but I was a expecting a delicious fresh and creamy Cole slaw only to be met with onions. Yuck! Still cannot get the taste out of my mouth.

    A better question might be "Why would anybody put raw onions on or in anything"?. Cooked onions I can tolerate - and can enjoy French Onion Soup or French Fried Onion Rings if done right. But raw onions? Never!

    I like raw onions. A little salt on some fresh green onions. Yummy!

    I hope the managerer of my favorite watering hole doesn't figure out this trick.

    I made the mistake of trying a jalapeno beer... once.

    It was good and cold, but burned all the way down. I needed to wash it down with a cold beer, so I took another long drink and said, "D'oh!"

    At the risk of (re) starting a religious war - coleslaw or cole slaw? Down south it’s just slaw, not even an apostrophe.

    Actually, depends on the onion. Not all onions taste nasty when eaten raw.

    There is no such thing as good fish and chips - the best you can do is just make it tolerably bland as opposed to the usual awfully bland.

    The best coleslaw recipe I'ver ever tasted, and the one I make regularly, calls for grated onion as part of the sauce, along with mayo, vinegar, celery seed, and a few other things. The onion is really just juicy pulp by the time you add it, so you don't get any onion texture or identifiable specific pieces of onion, but the extra bite is a great balance. I can't cloyingly sweet 'slaw...especially if made with ....shudder...Miracle Whip...the miracle is that anyone can actually gag that stuff down.

    Beer-battered, fried quickly in hot, fresh oil to a deep golden brown crunch but still moist and steamy inside, malt vinegar....mmmm.... love good fish'n'chips. Not much worse than bad fish and chips....it's not like bad pizza, which is still better than no pizza. No fish and chips is WAY better than bad fish and chips.

    Zeke’s in Fort Worth for great fish and chips, but only if you go within the 1st hour they are open.

    Onions? Meh...

    The better question is who puts slaw in their burgers? (I kinda like it).

    Yep, I can't stand 'em either. At restaurants I have to always tell the server to leave the onions off the salad... and about half the time, a piece of onion or two makes it into the thing and I can taste it for the rest of the day. Yuck!

    Sounds intriguing. Willing to share the recipe? My wife loves coleslaw but I tend to give her mine. I'm a big fan of vinegary/sour stuff but nothing too sweet.

    I have put onion in mine. Actually, I came across the best ratio by accident. I had been running some onions through the food processor and didn't clean it before running the cabbage through for the cole slaw. Despite not putting any onions in the slaw itself, it had just the right onion flavor.

    Of course, down here in NC you ask for slaw, you're likely to get "red slaw" (well it's really sort of orange) as they mix in some barbecue "dip" with it.

    Actually, the best slaw I make uses Brussels sprouts rather than cabbage. Also add a little blue cheese to the mix.

    Good coleslaw has horseradish in it.

    I like a good slice of raw onion in my burgers. Jalapenos too.

    Never heard of putting onions in cole slaw but that doesn’t sound terrible.

    Grandmother of German descent used sweet pickle juice to take away the typical blandness of cabbage/mayo, then used cracked pepper as well. I don’t care for most slaws out there, but I never pass up that family recipe.

    However, the addition of horseradish to that recipe sounds intriguing. Don’t see my wife or sister eating that though, they can't stand horseradish.

    Never tried horseradish. Margy insists on celery seed in hers.

    I have a couple coleslaw recipes that include onions, though they include lots of other things as well. The slaw I usually make does not.

    I put a little bit of raw, fresh onion in cole slaw. Along with vinegar and capers. I don't like that sweet, creamy junk most restaurants sell.

    I do. I chop them very finely. My sauce is mayonnaise, apple cider vinegar, celery seed, a little sugar, salt and pepper. Simple.
