One of my favorite summer side dishes is homemade coleslaw & what better occasion than a 4th of July party! This is great with Chili Cheese Dogs, Grilled Tenderloin, or your other favorite summer main dish!
Coleslaw is so easy to do. If you don’t have a mandolin, you can use a knife or cheat and buy pre-shredded cabbage. The dressing is so simple and you can adjust it to your personal preferences. 2 Tablespoons of Apple cider vinegar, a dash of celery seed, dry mustard instead of packaged…the possibilities are endless and every combination I’ve tried is so far is much better than the packaged versions!
- 5 cup Shredded Cabbage green, red or both
- 1 cup Julienned Carrots
- 1/4 - 1/2 cup thinly sliced Green Onions
- 4 tbsp Mayonnaise
- 1/2 tbsp Mustard
- Pepper to taste
Cut off cabbage (leaving the core) and slice on mandolin slicer.
Mix vegetables in a large bowl.
Add remaining ingredients and mix well.
Serve right away.
