Easy Creamy Coleslaw

Hello and hope you are all staying cool! This is one of the hottest summers we’ve had in awhile! I don’t like to bake or cook much when the weather is this hot–instead, I make a lot of salads, sandwiches, and simple side dishes that require little or no heating on the stove (unless I’m using a grill outside). Like this Easy Creamy Coleslaw…it’s definitely easy to make, since it’s made with a pre-shredded coleslaw mix, so you can mix it up in no time! It’s a great summer side dish with grilled burgers, hot dogs, and chicken–or whatever light summer meals you like to make. This coleslaw is also perfect for picnics or potlucks–the recipe can easily be doubled or tripled to make for a larger crowd.

Besides being easy to make, this coleslaw is also sweetened with honey instead of sugar. I also like to use plain Greek yogurt in the creamy dressing, but you can use sour cream if you prefer.
