Creamy Coleslaw With Bell Peppers & Red Onion

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by JackieOhNo

Although I usually think of coleslaw as a summertime side dish, it seems to go really well with my Super Bowl spread. I serve pulled pork with baked beans and some of this lovely, creamy coleslaw, then sit back and collect the compliments! Again, this makes a LOT, so adjust accordingly. This recipe is easily increased or decreased. Use a 16-ounce package of coleslaw mix for every six guests.

Loved this one! Easy to put together, loved the tang of the dressing and the hint of onion. My husband, who is a KFC Clone fan even enjoyed this-bonus points for that!!! I look forward to having this slaw on a smoky brisket sandwich...soon! Thanks for posting!
