Yummy (easy) Cole Slaw Recipe

I love the summertime! One of the best things is the food that gets served in the summer. The best part is that most of it is low fuss, easy prep foods that serve many. Below you will find a yummy recipe for southern style coleslaw. I got my original recipe from but I have adjusted the recipe below to fit my family’s taste. If you want to see the original recipe click here.

Yield: 8 servings
Preparation time: 15 minutes
Set time: At least 1 hour in the fridge if possible
Ingredients for the coleslaw & dressing
--1 bag pre-cut cabbage mix (in the salad asile) or 1 lb chopped cabbage
*if you don’t buy the cabbage mix (which includes carrots) you will need 1 large carrot or a bag of shredded carrots
--1 tablespoon distilled vinegar (1 ½ if you like a little extra tang)
--1/2 cup mayonnaise
--1 tablespoon white sugar
--1/4 teaspoon salt
--1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper

**Mix all of the non-cabbage and carrot ingredients together to form a sort of sauce. Then mix in the cabbage mixture and blend well. Refrigerate for at least an hour if possible for best taste.
