Optional add in's: S&P, chopped cilantro or parsley, sliced green onions, chopped bell pepper, dried cranberries, diced apples, sliced almonds


    • Whisk together the mayo, vinegar, lime juice and honey. Salt and pepper to taste.
    • Combine the coleslaw and dressing in a large bowl. Add desired mix in's. Toss until evenly coated and then store in the refrigerator until ready to serve.


    • Note: I love to use lime juice with chopped cilantro to add to tacos or bbq pork sliders.
    • If you prefer a more creamy coleslaw, feel free to double the dressing.
    • This coleslaw is best made within a few hours but can be made the night before. It's best to eat within 2 days.
