A cool, creamy, and crunchy coleslaw is a must have recipe for the summer cookout season. It’s the perfect side to have with burgers, hot dogs, BBQ, or fried chicken.
But much like potato salad, I find many coleslaw recipes to be a little lacking. Some produce soggy coleslaw that’s swimming in a watery liquid. Some are too sweet, some too dry. It can be difficult to get just the right combination of sweetness and tang. Creaminess and crunch.
This Buttermilk Coleslaw is a recipe I find myself using again and again.
