Easy cole slaw

We made bbq pulled pork sandwiches the other day. What goes better with that meal than an easy cole slaw recipe!! (originally published 10/15)

Typically the type you buy in the store is a bit limp and has too much dressing for us so I just whip up this easy cole slaw recipe I put together so it’s nice and fresh for our meal. Here is how you make it.

Ok so I love easy recipes I can throw together and are vibrant in color especially when I am bringing a dish to someone’s house.

I came up with a great and colorful pasta salad recipe here you’ll love, and this easy cole slaw recipe is great as a side dish for dinner/BBQ.

Ok so I cheat when it comes to the cabbage part.

It is so cheap to buy a bag already shredded with the carrots and all already done that it doesn’t make sense to buy all the ingredients.

I have done this with brocco slaw mix (yes there is such a thing), and a traditional bag of ready cut cole slaw mix and both work great.

I use 3 cups to make this dressing, of course you could double everything to make more. If you like a drier version you could add less mayo as well, I like a lot of “dressing” on ours.

Easy cole slaw

  1. Cole slaw mix (I used bagged but could cut your own cabbage)
  2. Mayonnaise
  3. White sugar
  4. Rice vinegar
  5. Optional – 1 c. pineapple tidbits to make Hawaiian cole slaw
