What a great recipe this is. Cole slaw is the perfect side dish for sandwiches, hamburgers or my favorite...fried chicken. The combination of mayo, sour cream, Dijon mustard and apple cider vinegar really takes the flavor of this coleslaw over the top. Pot luck, picnic, bar b que or dinner tonight, this nothing to it creamy coleslaw fits the bill.

Coleslaw is always a great go to side dish in summer for a barbecue or picnic and we all have the standard recipe that we depend on. In my opinion, the addition of cumin in this recipe is sheer genius and one that I have never previously come across. I often include some chopped walnuts or pecan nuts in my coleslaw which brings a nice little crunch but this recipe is a great basic. And do not forget that cumin, lol!

I will make this delicious coleslaw next time I make pulled pork. The combination of the two is amazing. I will never buy deli coleslaw again. What I make at home is so much better. I won't use the purple onion because my whole family would just pick them out anyway.

I'm definitely making this coleslaw recipe. It is just as easy as dumping in a bowl and mixing. You can buy all of these things shredded as well as I don't have the time to do all of that. I like Maggie G's idea of substitute Greek yogurt for the mayonnaise because I like the double cream yogurt so I am going to try it like that.

This is an amazing cole slaw recipe- perfect on top of pulled pork or as a side dish for a BBQ or picnic! A good healthy tip is to substitute Greek yogurt for the mayonnaise. It changes the texture and flavor but cuts down on the fat and calories. Give it a try!

it was by far the best coleslaw I had since my childhood days only one german Delie made it like this one I already made it EB
