Cole Slaw

Pin It
I think cole slaw is an underrated side dish that deserves some credit. It's always served on the side at BBQ joints, never fails to show up on the table at a summer get-together, and can always be found in the grocery store behind the counter just waiting to be packaged up. That's got to mean something. I think it means that people really do like cole slaw, but sometimes just forget about it.

This cole slaw is some of the best I've ever had. It was just creamy enough with the right amount of tang and sweetness. It would be perfect as a side dish on a hot summer day or even on top of a pulled pork sandwich. Whatever way you decide to eat it, I promise you people will gobble it up. I made it when my friends came over as a side dish to mini crab cakes, and it was gone by the end of the night. Enjoy!

Printable Recipe

  • 1/2 head green cabbage, shredded
  • 1/2 onion, finely diced
  • 1 large carrot, grated
  • 1 cup light mayonnaise
  • 1/4 cup white vinegar
  • 3 tbsp. sugar (I used Splenda)
  • Salt & pepper, to taste
Place cabbage, onion and carrot into a large bowl. In a smaller bowl, stir together mayonnaise, vinegar, sugar, salt and pepper. Pour over top veggies and toss to coat. Store in refrigerator until ready to serve. The longer this sits the better it tastes.
