Best Darn Coleslaw Recipe in the World
There’s nothing better than good ole Southern coleslaw on a hot afternoon. It makes the best snack and pick me upper and let’s be honest, it’s better for us than sweet treats which would be my second choice. I’ve been told that I make the best darn coleslaw in the world so I’m going to own that title. I don’t know how I ended up perfecting my recipe, but I did. It’s perfect and ready for you to try. Before I share, let me just say that Paula Dean is my hero. I’ve tried the lady’s coleslaw and I admit that it’s pretty good (that’s putting it mildly). I try to use as many of her recipes as possible because they are the absolute best. However, when it comes to my coleslaw, Paula Dean, you’ve got a rival. In fact, my coleslaw recipe is more tempting than chocolate. I’d even go so far as to say that you could save your marriage using my coleslaw recipe (because if this doesn’t make you pucker up, nothing will). In all seriousness, don’t quote me on that, lol. I just know some crazy person is going to go ballistic on me because that didn’t work…
You can make the coleslaw green or purple or use both colors in one dish. You can usually get a purple head for $1 at Walmart. I stick to green when it’s just for adults but for the kids, it’s much easier to get them to eat “Barney Food” which they love more than ice cream than it is to get them to eat coleslaw which they absolutely won’t eat. Don’t even try to touch that. If you’re a mom/grandma/aunt/sitter… you get it.
Best Darn Coleslaw Recipe in the World:
Gather your ingredients which are as follows…
Apple Cider Vinegar
Wash all of your veggies really well. I’m a clean freak in the worst way. I wash everything and then I wash it again.
We like our cabbage chopped up really well so I use my (amazon associate link as follows) food processor. This takes a while because I haven’t invested in a bigger one yet.
Chop 1 head of cabbage, green or purple, one or the other or 1/2 each or however you want to mix it up, a handful of baby carrots and 1/2 onion.
Add the following as follows:
1/4 cup of dill relish. 1/4 cup of vinegar. 1/4 cup of lime juice. 1 cup of sour cream. 1 tablespoon salt. 1 teaspoon pepper.
Mix it all together and chill for an hour or so. The longer it sits, the better it tastes. Stir well before serving.
