Does coleslaw remind you of picnics? It does me! Quick and Creamy Coleslaw will definitely be a hit at your next picnic or any meal for that matter.
I love it when my plate is dripping with the sauce from the coleslaw – especially when there is a hot dog or hamburger bun to soak it up!
Especially in the heat of summer, I tend to make meals consisting of salads. You know, the type of meals that don’t heat up the kitchen. Quick and Creamy Coleslaw is just that type of meal.
But, what does that have to do with coleslaw in the Fall?
Really, nothing except that I love a dish that is quick, easy and nutritious – enter Quick and Creamy Coleslaw – it is good no matter the season!
Having lived in southern Alabama before moving to west Texas, we frequented catfish restaurants – known to the locals as “catfish camps”.
These camps had all-you-can-eat fried catfish that was to die for!
Each time, I would promise myself that I would never eat so much at one sitting again – So much for promises!!!!
Delicious coleslaw was always brought to the table so you could graze while waiting for those platters of piping hot catfish!
So began my love of coleslaw and the birth of the Quick and Easy Coleslaw recipe.
Except right now, I want me some fried catfish to go with my coleslaw 😉
The problem with coleslaw is the thought of grating all that cabbage! But, that is what a food processor is for! I use my food processor to get the job done – and it does it quickly!
Now, you have no excuse NOT to grate, make and enjoy!
Using homemade mayonnaise with olive oil and honey, rather than sugar which is in so many coleslaw recipes, the following recipe is a healthy and tasty version.
With our family size, I normally start with 2 heads of cabbage and adjust the amount of sauce to cover it well.
Remember, I like to see the sauce swimming on my plate!
This recipe doubles, triples, quadruples … easily – just make more sauce to cover that cabbage!
