This Creamy Coleslaw is a super quick & easy side dish for your next picnic. There’s a secret ingredient that makes it better than any bottled dressing!
I’ll have to admit…side dishes are not my most favorite thing to make. I love eating them, but they always seem like a lot of work when the dish is not the main dish to eat.
When we have dinner as a family, I’m doing good if I get one side dish on the table. But when we host a gathering, I like a nice variety. But since I like a nice variety, and many side dishes can seem time consuming, I generally leave the side dishes to guests when they ask what they can bring.
Sometimes, though, I need a quick side dish to have with a home meal or to take to a dinner.
This is where Creamy Coleslaw comes in. This recipe comes from Taste of Home and although I am not completely in love with coleslaw, this creamy version hits the spot and never disappoints!
This recipe calls for a mixture of sour cream and salad dressing. You can feel free to use either mayo or Miracle Whip. I know families are generally all for one or the other. We use both in our house. And I’ve made this coleslaw with both successfully.
I think the sour cream is what I like about this recipe. It makes the dressing so…well… creamy!
You’ll love how quick and easy this coleslaw is to mix up. Buy a bag of coleslaw mix. Mix up the dressing in a small bowl, then add it to the coleslaw mix. You’re done…and you’ve made coleslaw dressing from scratch. So much better than the bottled kind.
Get creative with how you serve this Creamy Coleslaw. Use it as a side dish, or a topping for a sandwich!
