Restaurants with fried chicken or fish on the menu most often serve coleslaw as the preferred side. It's also a natural to pair with barbecue, sandwiches, and burgers. A cold, creamy, crunchy slaw provides the perfect contrast and complement to those foods and more.
This tasty, versatile side turns out to be quick and easy to make. You can make this classic slaw in just 5 minutes using the convenience of bagged pre-shredded cabbage/carrot mix. Unlike dressed lettuce salads, cabbage slaw doesn't wilt. You can make it ahead and chill it in the fridge for up to 3 days ahead. Creamy coleslaw is great to take along to potlucks and picnics.
Step 1. Assemble the ingredients:
Step 2. Whisk together the dressing ingredients.
Step 3. Add the coleslaw mix and stir until evenly combined.
Done. It's hard to make a quicker, easier salad. It's cold, crunchy, creamy, and so yummy.
Chill it. Cover the slaw and refrigerate it for up to 3 days. Serve it cold.
Serve it with barbecue. Where I'm from, coleslaw is a must with barbecue ribs and pulled pork barbecue sandwiches. Here are my recipes for those:
Make it a Yummy day!
