Classic Coleslaw and Chipotle Coleslaw
Classic Cole Slaw
1 cup Best Foods Real Mayonnaise
1 Tablespoon Lemon juice
2 Tablespoons Vinegar
2 Tablespoons Sugar
1 Tablespoon milk
1/2 teaspoon celery seed
1/2 teaspoon salt
dash or two of ground black pepper
1 big package coleslaw mix (the pre-shredded cabbage mixture by the bags of salad) can use two small bags if they don't have the big ones-- or you can mix your own, it's about 6 cups shredded cabbage and 1 cup shredded carrots, may add 1/2 cup really thin sliced green pepper if you want, but I usually don't.
Combine everything in a big bowl except the cabbage mixture, whisk to make sure it's mixed well. Taste, can add more vinegar or sugar to your taste.... I think I make it different everytime I make it.
Then pour in the coleslaw mix and toss to coat, cover and keep in fridge until ready to serve so the flavors mix.
Like I said before it's great in a pulled pork sandwich!! Yummo!
Also if you like spicy try this recipe:
Chipotle Coleslaw Sauce
1/2 cup Best Foods Real Mayonaise
1 or 2 chipotle peppers in adobo sauce (canned, I just use1 or 2 peppers and a spoonfull of sauce and keep the rest in the freezer) REMEMBER these are quite spicy
2 Tablespoons fresh lime juice
2 Tablespoons honey
1 teaspoon ground cumin
Salt and pepper to taste
1 regular size bag of classic coleslaw mix
Mix all ingredients together in a blender until smooth except for cabbage mixture. Put Classic coleslaw mix into a large bowl, pour Chipotle sauce over coleslaw mix and toss to coat. Cover and set aside in refrigerator 30 minutes or until ready to eat.
