Who is ready for cook outs and good ‘ol fashion bbq food? I am!! I am so over this winter weather, hats, and gloves. Let’s bring on Spring, grilled out dinners, and flip flops. Who is with me? 🙂 This Spring and Summer you have to try this coleslaw recipe – my family called is the BEST Coleslaw recipe.
Making it at home is much more frugal than buying it at the store. Once you see how easy it is to make, I think you will agree that it is worth making it at home.
Ingredients you need:
- Shredded Cabbage (Green and Red )
- Sliced Green Onions
How to make the BEST Coleslaw recipe:
1. Cut off cabbage (leaving the core) and slice on mandolin slicer. Here are some good mandolin slicers on sale. I use mine all the time and highly recommend it.
2. Julienne carrots.
3. Mix vegetables in a large bowl.
4. Add remaining ingredients and mix well.
5. Serve right away.
In less than 15 minutes, you can have this easy and delicious coleslaw ready to enjoy! If you want to save even more time, you can buy the coleslaw bags at the grocery store (next to the salad bags) and then finish the recipe. However, those can be pricey so I would only recommend it if you are short on time or if they are on sale.
I like to grab a bag for the weekend when they are super cheap. 🙂
I hope you try this delicious and come back and let us know how you like it.

Also, to save time, you can also use a prepackaged coleslaw mix.
