Basic Family Reunion Coleslaw

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Bone Man

Yep, this is the real stuff that your Great Aunt Martha made for her covered dish at the annual family reunion down at the old home place. No frills but wonderful cole slaw. This is the recipe that I exclusively use on pork barbeque sandwiches too. This cole slaw is NOT "milky-runny," even though it is mayonnaise-based. The original recipe comes from Art Ginsberg ("Mr. Food").

I really enjoyed this slaw with the lemon juice! Thanks Pat! Made for the Cookbook tag game.
