The warmer weather is here and with that means all the backyard bbq dinners, baked beans, and homemade creamy coleslaw you will be having — or at least we will.
I finally got my back porch all fixed up and pretty like I want. Now — all it is missing is a brand new grill, which shall be mine before too long. Look how pretty my flowers are!
Everything is finally coming together. I can’t wait to share the whole post with you that I am working on about beautifying your yard on a budget!
Okay — so back to the recipe I wanted to share with you today for Homemade Creamy Coleslaw. When I eat BBQ of any kind — whether it is a slow roasted pork roast, a bbq chicken sandwich, or more — it has to be covered in coleslaw. When you bite into that delicious sandwich and hear that crunch — you know you have reached BBQ heaven.
Here is my recipe for this delicious concoction. And please — DO NOT buy that storebought stuff. Making the dressing is simple and easy. Make it homemade.
- 1 16 ounce bag coleslaw mix
- 1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons good quality mayonnaise
- 1/2 cup buttermilk
- 1/4 cup cider vinegar
- 1 tablespoon sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
Combine all of the ingredients until mixed thoroughly. Adjust seasoning, if desired. Chill until ready to serve.
This can be made about two hours in advance, but any longer and it will lose its crunch.
