Goole ole’ Coleslaw

Friday has come. Time for the weekend, relaxation and backyard barbecues. Right?

Last week while the hubs was in town we had some newly wed friends over for dinner. Remember the slow cooker BBQ pork? {If not check it out} That was on our menu. The hubs loves coleslaw on his BBQ sandwich. Not me. No thank you “mayo in a jar” or anything of the sort.

Thankfully I came across a simple, inexpensive {less than $2 might I add} and refreshing coleslaw recipe. No Recipes saved the day. All the ingredients are “kitchen friendly” so all I had to buy was the coleslaw bag. Yes, I took a short cut buying the bag. In the end, I saved some cash versus purchasing different heads of lettuce, cabbage and carrots.

This recipe takes less than 5 minutes to make. This can be served right away as a tossed salad, or left to marinate overnight for a coleslaw.
