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 !!
