    tips & techniques
    Make the coleslaw
    1 Make the coleslaw

    Preheat your grill to maintain a temperature of 450-500°F. Carefully oil the grill grates. Wash and dry the fresh produce. In a large bowl, whisk together the sugar, half the vinegar, and half the mayonnaise. Cut out and discard the core of the cabbage; thinly slice the leaves. Peel the carrots and grate on the large side of a box grater. Add the sliced cabbage and grated carrots to the bowl of dressing; season with salt and pepper. Stir to combine. Set aside to marinate, stirring occasionally, at least 10 minutes. Taste, then season with salt and pepper if desired.
