was never a big fan of traditional coleslaw. The mid-west church pot luck version of my youth was always so goopy and overly sweet. For that reason I also disliked macaroni salad and all other mayonnaise based salads. When I moved to the south I discovered that there were a lot of different types of slaw and they could be crunchy and taste like an actual salad. I started making my own and now it's one of my go-to side dishes. I either make a vinaigrette or a very light creamy dressing with vegan mayo (soy free) and coconut milk. Both versions are fresh and delicious! I prefer a light coating of dressing but if you like a heavier slaw just make a double batch of the dressing. This slaw would be perfect for your memorial day cookout along with the Crockpot BBQ Pulled Pork!
