Creamy Coleslaw

READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by Fauve

My very first white coleslaw recipe...I've been making this for 18 years, and it never fails to impress people. The sour cream gives this dish a lovely taste, and sets it apart from all other coleslaws I've ever tasted.

Great coleslaw with a few changes! I followed the basic recipe but left out the pickles, and slivered almonds, and added raisins and sunflower seeds instead. Kids emptied the bowl, so it will be repeated!
