My Mom Won Miss Coleslaw USA At The County Fair With This Recipe

classic coleslaw

Whenever we have a picnic or invite friends over for a summer party I always make a big ‘ol bowl of classic coleslaw. Everyone devours it like nobody’s business. My husband especially loves classic coleslaw over any other salad. Now, my kiddos, they aren’t so partial to it as they aren’t cabbage fans but that’s ok, They can chow down on the potato salad. This recipe is very easy to make and it tastes great!
