Best Coleslaw Recipe

Who here loves Coleslaw? I feel like it’s one of those side dishes that you either love or hate. Fortunately, it’s one recipe I absolutely love. The first time I had it was at KFC years ago, and although I was hesitant to try it at first, I realized just how great it was. I know there are so many different versions of coleslaw, but today I’m sharing the best version that is very simple, quick, and the standard side you’ll find at most picnics and BBQs.

MY LATEST VIDEOS

As mentioned, this recipe is the classic version that everyone knows and loves. What’s great is you can easily customize it based on the seasonings and flavors you love most.

  • Asian Coleslaw – add Ramen Noodles, Almonds, Soy Sauce
  • Buffalo Coleslaw – add some 1 TB ranch and a few Tablespoons of buffalo sauce
  • Barbecue Chicken Coleslaw – add 1/3 cup barbecue sauce and 1 cup shredded chicken
  • Broccoli Slaw – broccoli slaw and ramen noodles and peanuts!
  • Ranch – Add 1 cup broccoli, 1/4 cup sunflower seeds, and 1/4 cup Ranch

The possibilities are endless!

Coleslaw Dressing

It’s always great to have dressing ingredients on hand, and this is one of those recipes that falls under that category. The main ingredients are as follows:

  • coleslaw mix
  • mayonnaise
  • sugar
  • vinegar
  • salt and pepper

Like I said – these are typical ingredients that most tend to have on hand. And as I mentioned, the dressing is easy to customize based on the flavors you want to get. With this standard coleslaw dressing, I’m so excited to kick it up a notch and try different varieties in the coming months as we tend to have loads of BBQs and get togethers.

How to Make Coleslaw

Once you combine all the dressing ingredients together, you whisk it until it’s smooth and you’re just about done. From there you can add any additional ingredients you want to try and then add your coleslaw mix and you’re done. Chill until you’re ready to serve, and you have a delicious coleslaw recipe that everyone loves that took under 10 minutes to make. 😉
