This coleslaw is lip-smacking good! You may as well get on out to the kitchen now and start shredding. I know you want some now. After you’ve had your fill come on back and leave a comment to tell me how you like this interesting recipe. Sometimes I like to pile some coleslaw onto my hotdogs! Messy as hell to eat, but it sure is good!

For a ‘different’ take, make up a batch of Ranch salad dressing and use it in place of the  mayonnaise. I really like it, and make it that way about half the time.

Just a quick little historical note; coleslaw is originally an Irish dish. They used to make it at the end of the month, using leftover veggies and cream (got that little tidbit from Wikipedia).
