Homemade Coleslaw

Cole slaw is hands down one of my favorite side dishes. It’s really random, but I just love cole slaw. I don’t actually eat coleslaw very often because I’m just not around it much. But in the summertime, it makes an appearance at many cookouts, which I appreciated. I think it’s perfect next to a grilled burger or brat and even better on a pulled pork sandwich.

Until this year, I had never even thought to make my own coleslaw. Not sure why, but the thought never crossed my mind. Granted, I never buy coleslaw either. I’m pretty sure I could down a container in a stomach aching amount of time. So it’s probably better that I never thought to make coleslaw before…

I’ve made this recipe 3 times already. Every time, it’s a huge hit. It is the perfect coleslaw. And, it’s so simple to throw together. I like to mix up the dressing ahead of time and then mix it with the cabbage about an hour before it is going to be served.

    Perfect! I crave sugar cookies a lot but just can’t handle the rolling out process sometimes.

    These look yummy! My kids are always asking me to make sugar cookies and I start out strong and by the end am regretting making them. This may be the perfect tradeoff.

    Yum! These look delicious and way easier than frosting individual cookies!

    What a great idea – I rarely take the time to make cookies since bars are so much faster and just as tasty. I love all the sprinkles too 🙂

    Anyone who is thinking about making these definitely should. They’re seriously SO GOOD. I just made them Sunday and I’m making them again for Easter.

    Yum, I’ve made these before. They are excellent and soooo much easier. Yours looks good. I’m going to try them with buttercream instead of cream cheese frosting next time.

    I think it will be better to put up the size of the baking pan too.
    Thank you very much for the recipe. =D
