Easy cole slaw recipe you can serve as a side dish or on top of pulled pork sandwiches for the perfect dinner. Using only a few ingredients it’s great!
We made bbq pulled pork sandwiches the other day (recipe link to come), and what goes better with that meal than some cole slaw!! 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. (originally published 10/15)
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.
To make our easy cole slaw recipe you will need:
- Cole slaw mix (I used bagged but could cut your own cabbage)
- White sugar
- Rice vinegar
- Optional – 1 c. pineapple tidbits to make Hawaiian cole slaw
Easy Cole Slaw Recipe

Here is a great way we have used this cole slaw on top of bbq pulled pork made in the crockpot! Any way you eat it is is great and tastes really fresh! Check out my easy cold pasta salad recipe here too, both great side dishes.
