Creamy Summer Coleslaw

gaynel mohler


Slaw is one of my favorite BBQ and summertime "fixins" I make it at least 2 hour ahead of being served. My man enjoys it with his fried perch and tater tots. I enjoy it with anything, even with mashed potatoes *heh* my sis and I found out while growing up, anything with mashed potatoes makes it slide down easier ( that was back in the day when slaw wasn't a favorite of mine) but I still find it nice with my smashed taters !!

How to Make Creamy Summer Coleslaw


  1. finely grate vegetables and apple in food processor. I prefer fine grate, makes it creamier
  2. in a large mixing bowl place grated food, add rest of ingredients, mixing well
  3. product will thin down some as it sits in fridge,
  4. place in a covered container in fridge at least 2 hours before serving. This will keep nicely for a couple of days.
  5. It is not totally necessary to add the evaporated milk, but my grandma always did, for the "creamy " part :)
