This easy 21 Day Fix Creamy Coleslaw is a simple and crazy-delicious side dish that’s the perfect addition to any dinner. Especially fantastic for barbecues, picnics and holidays!
Hey guys! So I wanted to call this “Creamy Dreamy Coleslaw”, but I refrained. I’m figuring people don’t often search the interwebs for “creamy dreamy coleslaw”, but they totally should. I mean, that should really be the standard, right? Unless you’re looking for a vinegar based slaw, in which case, that’s a horse of a different color.
I REALLY heart coleslaw, but ya know what sucks about it? I know you already know. The fat and calories are seriously out of control*. It reminds me of that video I posted on FB the other day. (<– please enjoy!) Even though it’s made up of veggies, you won’t be losing weight eating it any time soon. Well, the regular version, that is.
No more my friends.
Anyway, recently when I was testing a different recipe (South Carolina-Style Pulled Pork with Mustard BBQ Sauce… coming next week!), I REALLY wanted some slaw to go with it, or on it or basically whatever it takes to get everything in my mouth because yum. I made a slaw that was pretty close to the one in this post, but it wasn’t quite perfect. So I tested some more and YOU GUYS. This one is perfect.
So perfect, in fact, that my daughters thought I bought it at the store. I know, that doesn’t really sound like a glowing endorsement, but from my kids, it kind of is. They both gobbled it up and I’m here to tell you, it is TOUGH to get that little one to eat veggies!
It really is a million times better than anything you can get pre-made at the store, it’s so damn delicious, creamy and dreamy. Perfect for barbecues, picnics, holidays and getting veggies into reluctant children’s (and adults?) mouths. You’ll never buy pre-made again, I know I won’t.
Looking for more tasty, summery side dishes? Some faves from my friends are Cucumber-Cantaloupe Salad, Broccoli Bacon Salad with Pumpkin Seeds, and this easy One-Step Salsa. Oh! And here’s a HUGE list of recipes that are perfect for all of your BBQ, picnic and potlucking needs 😉
*Fun fact: the same size serving that you’re getting here (a half cup) can be anywhere from 140 – 210 calories when bought at the grocery store or ordered in a restaurant. This one clocks in at only 65! Whoop whoop!!
