A couple of weeks ago I was invited to a BBQ and asked to bring coleslaw. No problem I said… and then realized I did not have a go-to coleslaw recipe! How was that possible?! I mean , I cook all the time….. I guess I was never the one asked to bring the coleslaw. But I’m a FOOD blogger, living in the SOUTH !! Well, needless to say, the hunt was on for great coleslaw recipes…..
Mayo or not mayo – that is the question, at least when it come to coleslaw… and people are pretty passionate about it! Since we were having pulled pork – making it a real BBQ vs a cookout, but that’s probably a different post…) I wanted to bring a creamy coleslaw. So I turned to Southern Living. Their Best Barbeque Coleslaw caught my eye. Mayo AND buttermilk ??!! You can’t get much more southern than that. Now, I’m normally a Hellman’s girl, but I had some Duke’s mayonnaise in the fridge. So, I decided since I was going ‘southern’, I might as well pull out ALL the stops!
Well, I got lots of compliments on this coleslaw, so I consider it a hit…. and now I can say I have a great go-to coleslaw recipe. Whew! crisis averted. I know — high quality problem.
btw – Here’s a slow cooker BBQ Pork recipe to go along with the coleslaw, in case, like me, you dont’ have a smoker.
