Traditional Coleslaw



Traditional Coleslaw

To me, coleslaw means BBQ ribs are on offer, along with baked beans, mac and cheese and other traditional BBQ sides. But if we can depart from BBQ for a moment, the coleslaw on its own is a very fine little snack. It is also amazing alongside a sandwich or other deli fare. Crunchy and delicious!
