Summer has a slew of go-to main dishes, ranging from hamburgers to hot dogs to kebabs. But when it comes to sides, few are a better or more classic option than different types of slaw.

Slaw, short for coleslaw, is typically made of shredded vegetables combined with some kind of cream sauce and various vegetables. Within that basic construct, there are countless ways to customize your slaw to your preferences. There are almost as many different combinations of slaw as there are types of vegetable, topping, and cream. And it’s an effortless dish to customize for whatever is seasonal or local for that very reason.

And although slaw is the perfect side dish to a wide array of summer dishes, it can also be used as a topping for a burger or another piece of meat, or even a dip on pita or warm bread. So no matter what’s on the menu for your next meal or gathering, it’s unlikely you’ll regret whipping up a batch of slaw in advance.

To give you inspiration and ideas for your own summer cole slaw recipes, Stacker compiled a list of 25 slaw recipes from Allrecipes. Scroll on for some of the most popular recipes below.
