Simple Summer Coleslaw

1.8K

Growing up we never had homemade coleslaw, but we ordered KFC bucket meals and those came with coleslaw and I LOVED it. As an adult, I wanted to create a similar coleslaw that was a little lighter.

My kids groaned as I placed it on the table the first time. “Ewwww, coleslaw,” they said. I responded with the same words I have repeated for 25+ years at the dinner table, “Just try it.” My oldest took a bite and proclaimed, “WOW, you can even make coleslaw taste good!” High praise from my now 26-year-old.

This is the perfect side dish for your summer barbecue. It’s easy to make, has a simple ingredient list and doesn’t take much time. Serve it with my baby back ribs and your bbq is sure to be a success!

NOTE: Below the recipe, there are additional photos for each step of the process. I am not a fan of having to go on a scavenger hunt to find recipes inside a post, so you will always find the scroll after the recipe.
