BEST COLESLAW RECIPE

Everyone needs an easy, tried and true coleslaw recipe that they can make time and time again. Today’s recipe is the Best Coleslaw Recipe that I like to make for picnics, BBQs or as a topping for my pulled pork sandwiches. This recipe is creamy and uses a mixture of Greek yogurt and mayonnaise. 

When it comes to coleslaw recipes I like both creamy recipes and coleslaw recipes with no mayo. I usually rotate the recipes depending on what I am using it for. If you are looking for a no mayonnaise version check out my Healthy Coleslaw recipe that is also a favorite.

WHAT INGREDIENTS ARE IN THIS EASY COLESLAW?

CABBAGE MIX: The cabbage mix is obviously the most important part of a coleslaw. You can either buy a head of cabbage and shred it or you can buy a bagged mix of coleslaw. 

MATCHSTICK CARROTS: I added in some matchstick carrots but you don’t have to. The coleslaw is great either way I just like the added vegetables in mine. 

MAYONNAISE: The mayonnaise is part of the dressing on this coleslaw helping to create a creamy texture. 

GREEK YOGURT: I like adding Greek yogurt to my coleslaw dressing. I like the tangy flavor it adds along with the protein. 

DILL WEED AND CELERY SEED: The dill weed and celery seed are a nice addition the coleslaw adding some spice and flavor to the salad. If you have fresh dill you can also use that, just chop it up. You do not have to add these if you don’t want. 

FRESH HERBS: I really like adding fresh parsley to my coleslaw from time to time. It is optional!

HOW DO YOU MAKE THE BEST COLESLAW RECIPE?

The thing I love most about coleslaw is how easy  it is to put together and all of the uses for it. The most obvious use is to bring it a summer picnic, bbq or potluck. It comes together with minimal ingredients and just involves mixing those ingredients together. 

Start with the coleslaw mix. You can either buy a head of cabbage and shred it or you can buy a bagged coleslaw mix. Most groceries stores have some great bagged mixes now that make life easy and this salad quick to put together. 

Next you will mix the dressing together in a small mixing bowl until smooth and then add that into the coleslaw. Stir it up and add in the celery and dill weed if you would like along with fresh parsley. It is that easy!

HOW CAN I USE COLESLAW?

There are a lot of ways that coleslaw can be used in recipes aside from just eating it as a side dish. Here are some ways I enjoy it. 

Add this coleslaw on top of pulled pork or pulled chicken

Serve the coleslaw alongside beef brisket

Use this simple coleslaw in a rice bowl like in these Burrito Bowls with Heirloom Vegetable Burgers
