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.

    You know, I never ever like cole slaw when I get it as a side in restaurants. But I LOVE it homemade! My dad is a big fan and makes it often in the summer. Yours looks fabulous!
