Almost Famous Coleslaw

Almost Famous Coleslaw

My family is extremely picky when it comes to coleslaw, including myself.  I love the slaw that I use on fish tacos with lime juice and cilantro and I love marinated coleslaw.  It is the coleslaw with mayonnaise that I get picky about.  I am not a mayonnaise hater…I just don’t want to taste it.

This coleslaw is a perfect combination of flavors and it pleases my entire family.  I like to serve it when we smoke a Boston Butt or when I cook cornbread and pinto beans.  Some of you may be wondering what makes this coleslaw “almost famous”.  Give it a try, you may find that it taste somewhat like the slaw at a famous restaurant chain.  It can be served after 2 hours but I like it best after 24 hours.
