I serve this coleslaw every time I make my famous Carolina Style BBQ Pulled Pork.

Every time I make this coleslaw for people, they ask me for the recipe.

Though, when I told the hubby that I was posting this, he said, “I don’t know if you should post that one.” I asked why. His response, “You should keep it secret. That stuff is crazy!”

Hehehe.

But for all of those that have been requesting this recipe, I am happy to oblige!

Prep Time 3 hours 20 minutes
Total Time 3 hours 20 minutes

Ingredients

  • 1 large head of cabbage (or half a head of green, and half a head of purple)
  • 3 carrots, shredded
  • ¾ c mayonnaise
  • ¼ c whole grain Dijon mustard (often called "country style Dijon" - I prefer Grey Poupon)
  • ¼ c brown sugar
  • 3 Tb apple cider vinegar
  • 2 Tb milk
  • 1 tsp salt
  • ½ tsp freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/16 tsp cayenne pepper

Instructions

    1. To begin, shred your cabbage, discarding the hard core and stem. Place the shredded cabbage and carrots in a large bowl.
    2. In mixing bowl, combine all of the remaining ingredients and whisk until completely combined.
    3. Pour the slaw sauce over the shredded cabbage and carrots. With a pair of tongs or two wooden spoons, turn the mixture until cabbage and carrots are well coated with the sauce.
    4. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 3 hours or overnight. Give it a stir a couple times while it is chilling.
    5. Enjoy!

  1. I’ve been looking on-line for a good coleslaw recipe to go
    with my bbq pork. I didn’t want the very sweet kind; this
    is perfect! thanks Constance.
    (my pork roast is cooked for hours in the crockpot with Dr. Pepper and
    bbq sauce. Fam. loves it)
