Dave's Coleslaw

Rated as 4.72 out of 5 Stars

"This is a recipe I have worked on for a while and I think it is just about right. It goes well with just about anything from fried fish to hamburgers, and is to die for on a pulled pork sandwich. If you are going to use it with Q, reduce the amount of dressing you add to the cabbage so it's not too sloppy. For best results refrigerate over night to allow flavors to marry."

I have spent years looking for a great cole slaw recipe and this IS IT! Tart, tangy perfectly balanced - Dave you did it - Thank you!

I made this coleslaw for a potluck and it was pretty good (on day one). A few days later I made a fish dinner and thought I would serve the coleslaw as a side. It was awesome! So much better ...

Excellent and easy cole slaw dressing, but WAY too much of it!
