Classic Homestyle Cole Slaw Recipe


This recipe is extremely coveted in our family, fine-tuned over the years to make the perfect coleslaw. Sweet crunchy veggies are the star here, with a bright, tangy dressing that makes this the perfect side for any summer barbecue, pairing well with a smoky bbq sauce or on top of our Pulled Port(obello) Sandwich. It also happens to be a snap to make. What more could you ask for?
