Creamy Coleslaw is the Perfect Summer Side Dish
I am a coleslaw convert. It’s not that I disliked coleslaw. I just tended to ignore it. Whenever it made an appearance at a picnic or a potluck I just passed it by thinking – cabbage, it’s a bowl full of cabbage! Well, I had a life changing creamy coleslaw event not too long ago and it looked like this:
Creamy coleslaw on top of Crockpot BBQ Beef on homemade hamburger buns. O.K., so maybe not life changing, but delicious. And I have changed my mind about coleslaw. I don’t know who thought of it first, who thought of adding coleslaw to BBQ beef ?? But it was pretty much a brilliant move.
I love the cool, creamy, crunch texture that this coleslaw recipe adds to the warm, smoky flavor of the BBQ beef.
It can be a little messy to eat but so worth the mess and the effort. This coleslaw recipe can, of course, be used as a side dish as well.
But when given the option, add it to your BBQ sandwich. You won’t be sorry!
To make the dish quick and easy creamy coleslaw recipe, I used a pre package coleslaw mix that is available in your produce section. Of course, you could always chop up your own cabbage using a combination of green and red. Throw in some grated carrot for some extra crunch and color.
I love adding red onions in too.
The dressing is a combination of mayo, white balsamic vinegar, dijon mustard, sugar, Worcestershire sauce and celery seed. Lots of yummy flavors there.
