Tangy Cole Slaw

Tangy Cole Slaw | Life, Love, and Good Food

Every good Southern cooks needs a solid cole slaw recipe to go along with pulled pork barbecue or fried catfish and hushpuppies. Today’s recipe for Tangy Cole Slaw was given to me by a co-worker probably 15 years ago and is perfect for picnics and potlucks, and I think it’s especially perfect for a fish fry or shrimp boil. Instead of having a mayonnaise-based dressing, this slaw is made with a tangy oil and vinegar dressing and is seasoned with dry mustard and celery seed. A bit of sugar adds just the right amount of sweetness.

And since picnic season is right around the corner, here are a few of my other favorite picnic side dishes.
