Homemade Coleslaw Recipe
Okay. Confession time. I used to be an incredibly picky eater.
Like really, extremely, RUDELY picky.
When I first started dating my husband, we used to go over to his sister’s house for dinner sometimes. I would make him drive through Subway on the way over, and eat a sub before I got there just in case I didn’t like the dinner she made.
My sister-in-law is one of the best home cooks I’ve ever had the pleasure of eating with. Ever. Ever. Ever.
I was just cray.
She makes almost everything from scratch. Has an amazing eye for a recipe. And somehow just KNOWS when something will be incredible. I was just stupidly picky. In a, “Ewwwww! Mushrooms!” kind of way.
I wouldn’t actually SAY it, but I didn’t try anything, and had a LONG list of things that I just didn’t “like”.
It took me YEARS, and much prodding from Jeremiah to branch out and try some new things.

Jen’s Creamy Chicken Wild Rice Soup was and is one of my favorite chicken soups. You have to try it! Her Garlic Fry Bread also is amazing, and this Beefy Mexican Casserole is a great change-up from your typical taco night.
My mother-in-law’s Homemade Clam Chowder will warm you up and fill you up on a cold night. Forget Dooger’s. This stuff is legit. She also introduced me to the magic ofChicken Marsala, and like whoa you guys. Still one of my favorite meals.
So, this is all to explain to you how I made it all the way to thirty years old without ever even tasting coleslaw. Yes. You read that right. THIRTY years without the magic of coleslaw.
Over the years I’ve tweaked and changed this recipe a bit to suit my own newfound Coleslaw connoisseurism, and I think you’ll enjoy it too!
How To Make Homemade Coleslaw
Homemade coleslaw is SO easy. This is a great recipe to pass off to a kid to make while you are busy getting things ready for the rest of the BBQ. P.S. This coleslaw would also be perfect with this Baked Fried Chicken from The Cookie Rookie! DROOOOOOOOOOL.
Place your sauce ingredients in a large bowl. Mix. Dumb in cabbage mix. Stir. Stick in the fridge. Done.
I ate this for a meal for lunch that day. Crunchy. Tangy. Sweet. Amazing.
