Traditional Coleslaw

Coleslaw is without doubt a main dish when having a barbecue party, and is perfect for pulled pork, spareribs or smoked pork cheeks.

We have tried many combinations (adding carrots, herbs, low-fat sour cream, chopped jalapeños and lemon), but found this one to be the best. It is the combination of the cabbage, the intense onions, fat from the sour cream, sweetness from the sugar and sourness from the vinegar that makes the coleslaw tasteful and delicious.


Ingredients (6-8 servings)

1/2 cabbage

2 red onions

1 cup sour cream (don’t use low-fat)

1/3 cup confectioners sugar

1/8 cup apple cider vinegar

2 tbsp. mayo


Cut cabbage and onions into thin slices and mix it together in a bowl.
