Simple 'Slaw

Coleslaw is a staple when it comes to summer time and BBQ's. Whether you are having a cheeseburger or pork ribs, nothing is a more suiting side choice than a good old fashioned coleslaw. After trying many different recipes, I came up with the one below by swapping out ingredients from each one. Hope you enjoy it.

Recipe yields 4-6 servings

1 large head of green cabbage
2 large carrots
1/2 cup light mayonnaise
2 tbsp Dijon mustard
1 tbsp white vinegar
1 tbsp sugar
1 tsp honey
Salt & freshly ground pepper to taste

Remove the outer layers on the cabbage until you reach fresh, clean leaves. Remove the root of the cabbage and sit the cabbage on the flat surface you just created.

Cut the cabbage in half and remove the core from both halves.

Slice into very thin strips. Depending on the size of your cabbage and your preference, you may want to cut the strips in half to have smaller pieces. Rinse the shredded cabbage in a colander and place in a large bowl. Peel and shred the carrots and add them to the bowl with the cabbage.

In a small bowl, combine the mayonnaise, Dijon mustard, vinegar, sugar and honey. Whisk all ingredients together until well combined.

Pour dressing over the cabbage and carrots and mix well until everything is coated. Add salt and pepper to adjust the flavor to your liking. Serve at your next BBQ and your sure to be a hit! Enjoy!
