Isn’t summer the best? Especially summer in Northern Michigan. Lake days, 2 tracking, bonfires and of course, cookouts.
We take advantage of cooking out at often as possible when it’s nice out, and honestly even in the snow, just to remind us of when it was nice out.
One thing I don’t like about cookouts is store bought potato salad or coleslaw. We usually try to whip up our own to take to cookouts, the freshness and flavor of making your own really can’t compare. And we’ve taken it up a notch with this recipe.
This coleslaw is quick and easy to put together and only requires a handful of ingredients but will wow your crowd. You can always kick it up a bit by adding more DD214 or fresh jalapeños.
1/2 red cabbage thinly sliced
1/2 green cabbage thickly sliced
8oz shredded carrots (I used bagged carrots)
1.5 cups mayonnaise
1 teaspoon lemon juice
2 teaspoons minced garlic
2 tablespoons DD214
salt and pepper to taste
optional: fresh sliced jalapeños and dill
- Thinly slice red and green cabbage and add to a large bowl, add shredded carrots.
- In a separate bowl mix mayonnaise, lemon juice, garlic and DD214
- Add DD214 mix to cabbage and mix well
- Garnish with jalapeños and dill
