Simple Coleslaw

This coleslaw is perfect for a quick and easy side dish that will have you coming back for more.

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 my refrigerator just to get them to fit.

Cabbage lasts nicely in the fridge and it’s wonderful 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 favorite sandwiches is pastrami with Swiss cheese topped with coleslaw.

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.
