I have found that sweet relish which already includes a little vinegar and sugar makes a delicious Cole Slaw.  This coleslaw is creamy, slightly sweet, and has a somewhat tangy flavor.  It has a great balance between sweetness and tanginess.  If you are thinking about leaving the red/purple onion out, do not.  It adds a lot to this coleslaw.  This coleslaw makes a delicious topping or side to many dishes like BBQ, BBQ sandwiches, fried chicken, fish tacos, chili dogs, Reubens, or most any other home-cooked favorites.  If you are looking for a quick side dish to compliment your favorite recipes or to take on your picnic try this easy coleslaw.

Use ONE of the followings for the cabbage:

  • One head cabbage, finely shredded with two shredded carrots.
  • 2 – 1 pound bags, finely shredded slaw with carrots.
  • One pound bag of freshly shredded slaw and 1 pound broccoli slaw.  I like using the combination with the broccoli.  It holds the crunch.

Having a delicate balance in life is very challenging for moms.  We wear many hats each day. We get pulled from one thing to the next especially if we have several children.  Our challenge is to try always to put God first.  Spend a few minutes with God each day reading a chapter or just a verse from God’s Word and dwell or meditate on it.  Spend time with Him in prayer each day.  He will balance the rest of our day.  Somehow, it always works.

Ezell’s Catfish Camp has great Cole Slaw

They have several restaurants in my home state of Alabama.  I was thrilled to see that Southern Living Off The Eaten Path Cookbook included Ezell’s Catfish Camp’s Coleslaw and Hush Puppies in their cookbook.  This slaw is sweet, creamy, easy, and genuinely delicious.

  • Add the dressing to the slaw just before serving. This keeps the slaw crunchy. If you do not like your slaw crunchy, you can mix everything together earlier.
