My husband LOVES coleslaw, and he has become quite the food critic over the years. I guess I’ve spoiled him! He says often times coleslaw can be either too sweet, not wet enough, mush, no flavor, or whatever he can find to come up with. So we scoured recipes in cookbooks and over the internet and tried out many of them. He found one that was “ok, but not quite there yet”, so after a number of modifications of our own, we came up with this Coleslaw recipe, and he loves it! This one just barely made it into my most recent cookbook as we came up with the recipe just in the nick of time before sending it off to the publisher. And with BBQ season here, it’s the perfect time to try it out, Enjoy
