Cole Slaw – For Your Picnic or Barbecue

Cole SlawCole Slaw is great for a picnic or an outdoor barbecue. Too often, though, it is made with mayo, making it rather delicate and needing to be refrigerated. I have created this recipe to solve that problem. Here’s my cole slaw recipe without the mayo. It’s still a good idea to keep it cold, but it’s not as delicate as cole slaw with mayo!

Super easy to make, too! Only takes 20 minutes or so to put it together. But give it at least an hour in the fridge so all those flavors can meld together!
