Tempt My Tummy Tuesday… Easy Summer Cole Slaw

by Lisa on June 18, 2012

Tempt my Tummy Tuesdays

The other day I was throwing together a quick meal with a BBQ feel to it.  I have added some BBQ sauce to the left over grilled chicken from the night before.  Opened a can of Bush’s Best Maple Cured Bacon Baked Beans and started heating them up.  I then remembered the store bought bag of prepared cole slaw mix (shredded green cabbage, carrots, and red cabbage) and realized I had everything for my easy cole slaw recipe. Such a simple meal that pleases my family is always a winner.

Today I am sharing the super easy cole slaw recipe.  It is sweet and tangy.  Enjoy!

Oooo that looks good and not overly creamy (I can’t eat those ones). I had a conversation about cole slaw with a friend the other day and can NEVER eat it in a restauarnt again 😉

Michelle, I like this too, because it is not creamy. I grew up with the creamy kind – that my mom made. But, I like this one as it is not so heavy. 🙂
