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.

    I covet mushroom and asparagus recipes. I’m the only one in my family who will eat them- le sigh.
    This looks really good and I love pasta and shrimp too, I so could have helped you polish this off.

    Others given a capital letter in later printings were copyrighted names such as Kleenex,
    which appeared as kleenex in the first printing (the reason it was in the
    dictionary, of course, was that it had changed in usage from denoting a brand of
    tissue to being a synonym for tissue), but was thereafter capitalized under
    threat of lawsuit.
