Creamy Coleslaw

Throw away all your other creamy coleslaw recipes, because you are going to fall in love with this version. Creamy, fresh, and delicious. The trio of fresh herbs adds a touch of needed color and opens it up for a fuller taste.

Coleslaw is so much more than a summer side. I make it all year round. I use it on top of pastrami, pulled pork, or I’ll dress up a hot dog with it. I also like to tuck it in egg rolls, wrap it in tacos, or add it to a rice bowl. Eliminate the dressing and toss the slaw mix, fresh herbs and all, into soups or stews for a more complex dish.

Play up the herbs that will best complement your dish. If you are making fish tacos, for example, bring in more dill or parsley. Pulled pork loves chives. Be creative and add other herbs as you see fit.

No kidding, this creamy coleslaw really might be the last coleslaw recipe you will ever make.
