Cole Slaw is one of those sides you almost expect to see at every picnic. It's cool, it's crunchy and with the right dressing, downright delicious!
The dressing for this recipe is from my Aunt who was also my Godmother. Even if pre-bagged cole slaw mixes were available back then, I doubt she would have used it. Every time she made cole slaw she painstakingly shaved the cabbage really thin - it was kind of her trademark. She even painstakingly would French green beans. What I loved about her slaw was the dressing and luckily I watched her make it one time and have created this cole slaw dressing from memory ever since.
The cole slaw dressing has a bit of tang to it which comes from the apple cider vinegar and the sour cream. There's no sugar either, and that's a plus for me as I can't stand overly sweet salad dressings. Flavor wise it's very tasty and can also be used as a dressing for garden salad.

It's been cold or cool and windy as all get out here when it's supposed to be Spring! Yesterday I did a picnic meal which we enjoyed indoors. Fried Chicken, this cole slaw and some of my classic red potato salad. We can't wait for the first outdoor picnic. How about you?
