Cole slaw is a staple at nearly every summer barbecue in America.  Having the right cole slaw is the trick.  We tend to serve a lot of rich food at our barbecues. So, I love this light and simple recipe that has just the right amount of sweet and tang to accompany our dishes.

We had a fabulous barbecue this weekend with our closest friends.  Everyone brought something and we had quite a feast we enjoyed The Best Ever Crockpot Pulled Pork, Grilled Sausages, Seasoned Grilled Fries, Grilled Sweet Potato Fries, Grilled Spicy Sweet Corn, a fantastic veggie tray and an unbelievable Peach and Strawberry Salad with Honey Maple Poppyseed Vinaigrette from my dear friend Mary at Barefeet in the Kitchen.  What a round up!  Amazing friends, family, food and good conversation.  The perfect party.

Enjoy and happy Labor Day!

  1. I'm so glad that you enjoyed the salad, Donna. We had so much fun spending time with everyone! The foods were fantastic too. I don't even remember the last time I made smores. Roasted marshmallows are clearly too addictive for this girl! Thanks again for hosting!

  3. I love good slaw and this one sounds very similar to my current favorite. For me, the celery seed is a definitive flavor for good cole slaw.

  4. I love collecting cole slaw recipes. My Mother made the best and I can't duplicate it so, I'm just going to have to find a new one I like. This one sounds delicious! Thanks! Pinning it!!

  5. Replace the vinegar in this recipe with tarragon vinegar and you will win a blue ribbon for sure!!! You won't believe the difference it makes.
