Homemade Coleslaw

26 Aug

With Labor Day Weekend coming around the corner I thought it might be fun to share an easy yet staple dish that you can easily make and bring to a cook-out! Coleslaw is very easy to make and I even learned a little secret from my grandma while making it : ) This is traditionally my sisters recipe but since I took a stab at it I got to take some pictures to share!

First, start off by collecting your ingredients. You will need:

1 medium sized cabbage finely shredded

5-6 baby carrots finely shredded

1/2 apple diced into small pieces

1 tbsp honey

5-6 tbsp vinegar

1 cup mayo (not pictured)

1 tsp celery seed

1/2 tsp salt and pepper

Simply prepare all of your veggies, then mix all of the ingredients together! These measurements are approximate, so if you like your coleslaw sweeter or more vinegary than add more or less of that ingredient.

Now for the secret-grandma-recipe: prepare your coleslaw in a wood bowl that has been rubbed with a fresh clove of garlic!

Let the coleslaw sit in the wood bowl for an hour or two before serving to pick up the garlic taste, then serve! Cheers : )
