This easy and delicious Homemade Creamy Coleslaw makes the perfect side dish to serve with any meal. Also, it’s a simple coleslaw that tastes great.
It’s interesting how many people associate coleslaw with summer and barbeque foods.
However, my family has always eaten coleslaw year round as a side dish with many foods including seafood.
The coleslaw is simple and super easy to make. Although, I usually make it the night before I want to serve it for dinner.
We find the coleslaw tastes even better than most basic coleslaw recipes.
Especially, when we let all the flavors from the creamy mayo dressing marinate overnight.
Though they’re times, I pop the coleslaw into the fridge and serve it for dinner after an hour.
Usually, I use a prepackaged coleslaw mix bag like Dole to make the coleslaw; this saves me time from having to chop up carrots and cabbage.
Making coleslaw at home instead of going to KFC or Raising Canes saves me tons of money.
Even though, my family loves KFC coleslaw they brag about how good my creamy coleslaw tastes.
My mother makes a coleslaw similar to mine, but she adds buttermilk to her coleslaw recipe and calls it Southern coleslaw.
There’s another coleslaw I use to eat growing up my Aunt made called Old Fashioned coleslaw. She added milk, bell peppers, and onions to her coleslaw recipe.
