Coleslaw Recipe

Coleslaw makes a great side dish for all of your summer meals. It goes great with fish, chicken, burgers, hot dogs, and much more. I even enjoy using it as a topping for hot dogs. The greatest part about coleslaw is that it’s so easy to make. This can be prepared and in the refrigerator within 15 minutes at most. Basically, all you have to do is mix the dressing up and combine it with the cabbage and carrot mix. This taste very similar to the coleslaw you would find in restaurants. If you think the amount of sugar might make the dish too sweet for your taste, you can use less. This is a fantastic recipe; give this one a try for the summer. Enjoy.
