Simple Coleslaw

2-coleslaw

This is the time of year when cabbage tends goes on sale, especially right before St. Patrick’s Day.

When the price is super cheap it’s hard to pass it up.  I usually buy too many and end up having to stuff them in the nooks and crannies of the fridge just to get them to fit.

Cabbage lasts nicely in the fridge and it’s delish in salads, tacos, soups, or when sautéed or even steamed.

And it’s so good made into coleslaw too.

Have you had coleslaw in a sandwich before?

One of my ultra fave sandwiches is pastrami with Swiss cheese topped with coleslaw.  SUPER YUM.

This coleslaw recipe is quick to make and best of all it’s made from ingredients right out of the pantry.

It’s also super tasty and can be whipped up in no time for a side dish.

Before we check out the ingredients, a huge thank you for stopping by!

And have a nice weekend too.

Ok, on to the ingredients.
