4 Ingredient Tangy Coleslaw

READY IN: 10mins
Recipe by Nif_H

This recipe was on the President's Choice website to serve with Beer and Smokin’ Stampede BBQ Ribs. Simple with minimal effort - perfect! I didn't count the salt as an ingredient. Please note that it states you need 2 hours for the onions to soften. I made this recipe for a work event and I greatly increased the amount of coleslaw mix that it works with. Enjoy!
