Get Grilling: Charred Coleslaw

Summer cookout food doesn’t have to slow you down. Thrillist teamed up with Miller Lite and celeb chef Aarón Sánchez to create these simple yet flavorful dishes that’ll be sure to win the cookout. Check out our recipe and video for this charred coleslaw:

Charred Coleslaw with Miller Lite Michelada Vinaigrette

Total Time: 10 to 30 Minutes
Yield: 6 to 8 servings

½ large head red cabbage
½ large head green cabbage
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 teaspoon kosher salt
½ teaspoon ground black pepper
Vegetable oil for grilling
½ cup lightly packed cilantro leaves, chopped
⅓ cup Miller Lite Michelada Vinaigrette
1) Leaving the stems intact, cut both half heads of cabbage lengthwise into thirds. Coat each wedge with olive oil and season with salt and pepper.
2) Prepare your grill with high heat (about 500°F); clean the grate and allow it to preheat for at least 5 minutes. Grill the cabbage wedges directly over the flame for 1 or 2 minutes, until they’re charred on one side but still mostly crisp and raw throughout. With tongs, flip and repeat on their other flat side. Pull them off the grill (be careful; a few of the outer layers may have loosened and want to slip away) and proceed right away or cool to room temperature.
3) Remove the core and chop the cabbage into thin ribbons and combine them with the cilantro in a large salad bowl. Add the Miller Lite Michelada Vinaigrette and toss to coat. Serve right away.
