Do you know how crazy easy it is to make a homemade coleslaw recipe at home? Ridiculously easy. I don’t know why I thought it would be complicated. I don’t know that I really thought much about it at all. My dad has been on a crazy KFC kick (I’ve tried talking him out of it) and buys the coleslaw almost every time as his side dish of choice. Although I must admit it’s pretty tasty, I can tell you right now I don’t want to know what’s in their coleslaw recipe. Or do I? No. I don’t. It’s just better that I make my own. In a controlled environment you can adjust the sugars and things. At a restaurant? Not so much.
Can you tell that I’m in the mood for warmer temps, eating outside, and summer foods? Between my Mom’s Best Potato Salad, Mom’s Best Macaroni Salad, and this Quick & Easy Homemade Coleslaw Recipe you are just about set. Not quite. I’ve still got lots of great recipes up my sleeve that I know you will love! Stick around, you won’t want to miss them!
