If you love a creamy coleslaw with your picnic or barbecue, give this one a try. All you need are are a few easy to obtain ingredients, and a few hours to chill the coleslaw before serving. I think you will enjoy the simplicity of the recipe and hearing your family and friends rave about the slaw. This weather is getting warm and picnics and we will be cooking on the grill a lot. I like to have a fresh cold salad of some sort ready to go when dinner time rolls around. There is always the option of buying a ready made salad from the deli, but when we are growing our own garden vegetables, it is just as easy and even more delicious to make the salads at home. Then I know exactly what was used to make it, too.
Easiest Creamy ColeSlaw Recipe
Green Pepper (optional)
FOR the DRESSING
mayonaise – 1 cup
vinegar – 1 Tablespoon
granulated white sugar – 2 Tablespoons
Dijon mustard – 2 Tablespoons
Mix the dressing ingredients until well blended and smooth. Refrigerate while preparing the vegetables.
Shred the cabbage and carrots and green pepper (optional) as you prefer. Make approximately 5 to 6 cups of shredded vegetable. I use approximately 1/2 large head of green cabbage, 1/2 head of red cabbage, 2 carrots, and 1/2 of a green pepper. I like the different colors in the coleslaw. It makes this creamy coleslaw recipe look fresh and colorful.
When the vegetables are ready, slowly blend dressing into the shredded vegetables until the slaw is mixed well. Cover the bowl and chill completely in the refrigerator. Enjoy the creamy coleslaw recipe with barbecue chicken, hamburgers, hotdogs, ribs or whatever main dish you like! My favorite way to eat slaw is as a topping on a pork barbecue sandwich!
