Easy Coleslaw

Coleslaw is such a basic dish, but it can round out a meal nicely. Fresh and crunchy, it’s the perfect pairing for pulled pork, fried fish, and hamburgers. I’ve even been known to eat it alone with ruffly potato chips. Don’t judge. It’s a good combo.

There are about eleventy hundred different varieties of coleslaw out there. While I like them all, the one I’m sharing with you today has been my go-to cole slaw recipe for years now. Try it with for your next cookout, picnic, or fish fry and let me know what you think.

    I love coleslaw also, and my favorite recipe has a 1/2 t. horseradish….kind of a mystery ingredient that gives just a little zing!
