Mama’s Coleslaw

Okay, guys. I have a treat for you today! My mama’s easy coleslaw recipe! You’re going to love it.

Just about every time we have any sort of get-together, my mama brings her famous coleslaw and everyone goes nuts for it. It always gets rave reviews and people are always asking for the recipe.

I figured it was high time I got around to sharing it with all of you! I just know you’re going to make this one again and again.

You know the KFC coleslaw recipe that everyone loves? Well, this is similar, because the cabbage is chopped up really fine. In fact, it’s chopped up smaller than the KFC coleslaw, which makes it even better in my opinion!

It’s really just the simplest recipe and takes about no time to prepare. You will want a food processor to chop your cabbage. My mama starts with a bag of the traditional coleslaw mix – not the angel hair kind, because that kind doesn’t have any carrots in it. Grab the chunkier cut kind.

You just pop the mix in a food processor and stir in some mayo, cream, and a few seasonings. It’s seriously such an easy coleslaw recipe and it’s ready in minutes!

I like to serve this with my turkey meatloaf, alongside my homemade hamburger helper, and it’s divine served on top of my pulled pork with Carolina barbecue sauce! I mean, really. It goes great with just about anything!
