|Make the dressing|
Another meal that I feel longs for coleslaw is a pulled pork sandwich. This is something I make often. (It's one of my husband's favorite meals.) So making coleslaw is something I do pretty often.
|add the coleslaw|
For a pulled pork sandwich we prefer our coleslaw pretty traditional. Creamy and delicious, this coleslaw is just perfect. It's pretty basic, but so much better than store bought. In fact if you usually purchase coleslaw I think you will be amazed by the yumminess of this version.
|Give it a toss|
It's so simple too. I mean really fast to make. Add the dressing ingredients to a bowl and stir, throw in a bag of coleslaw mix from the store (of course you can shred your own cabbage and carrots) give it a toss and your done! That's it! It takes about 5 minutes tops. And the dressing ingredients you probably already have on hand.

Easy Creamy Coleslaw
This takes only a few minutes to make, but it needs about a half hour to sit in the fridge before eating, so plan accordingly. I like my coleslaw pretty plain. In fact I usually don't use the optional onion and garlic powder. Make it to your taste, if you feel it needs more flavor, go for the spices.
1 (16 ounce) (454 g.) bag coleslaw mix
2/3 cup (158 ml.) mayonnaise
1/4 cup (44 g.) sugar
2 tablespoons milk or cream
2 tablespoons white vinegar
1/2 teaspoon celery salt
freshly ground pepper to taste
1/2 tsp dried onion - optional
1/2 tsp dried garlic powder - optional
Add everything except the coleslaw mix to a large bowl and whisk together. Add the bag of coleslaw mix and toss well. Cover and refrigerate for 30 minutes before serving to allow flavors to meld. As it sits it will also get creamier. At first toss you may think it's not wet enough but upon sitting it gets creamier and more moist.
