My Grandma’s coleslaw was the only coleslaw I think I ever liked, besides KFC.

Coleslaw is really a “must-have” with pulled pork sandwiches! What is the big deal you might ask…
try it, I think you will agree.

If you haven’t made coleslaw before, not to worry! It’s simple, especially since you can buy the cabbage and carrots already shredded. And this I might add is a huge time saver.

For plant-based diets substitute Vegenaise for mayonnaise.



To Make Grandma’s Coleslaw You Will Need These Ingredients:

  • Shredded cabbage
  • Shredded carrot
  • Mayonnaise (substitute Vegenaise for dairy and egg-free. This product is also gluten-free)
  • White wine vinegar
  • Celery seed
  • Sugar
  • Salt and pepper




Enjoy with some tasty fish tacos!
