A variation of a BBQ mainstay. A basic creamy cole slaw with the addition of dill pickles, a touch of mustard, and caraway seeds. Adapted from Cook's Country.

Yummy slaw. I used both red and green cabbage, and followed the rest of the recipe. The pickle and caraway seeds are lovely additions, and the sugar amount was perfect for our tastes. I skipped the salting process. This would be great in a sandwich. Thanks for posting.
