Yes, I know that as of this writing, the Autumn/Winter holidays are in the rearview mirror, but I thought I would post this because the way this year is warping by, the holidays will be there before we know it. To be honest, this slaw is not just for the holidays, serve it all year long. So, you ready… Let’s get into the kitchen.

    Coleslaw Mixes Bagged coleslaw is one of the things that I do not mind buying. Mind you, I still wash it and spin dry before using. There are several types out there: Plain cabbage, or cabbage with other things, like carrots and the like. Choose what works best for you.
