I've been experimenting with different creamy coleslaw recipes and have yet to find one I really like. I used to follow the directions on the bag of shredded cabbage, but these days I don't buy the bag anymore. Buying the full head of cabbage stretches into multiple meals, so that is what I do now. This may not be a good thing for JR though! ;)
Today I wanted to make JR one of his favorite lunches, a double bacon cheeseburger. However, I can't eat a double bacon cheeseburger without gaining 5 lbs, so I make myself a single with a vegetable side dish. I wanted a smoky burger, so I thought a honey mustard coleslaw would pair nicely.
We both really liked the zip and mild sweetness that this had, plus I was happy to be able to keep the mayonnaise to a minimum making this fairly healthy. This is definitely something can see us eating throughout the upcoming grilling season.
Do you have a favorite coleslaw recipe I should try?
Here is what you'll need:
- 1 tsp grainy mustard
- 1 tsp dijon mustard
- 1 tsp honey
- 1/2 tsp sugar

- 1 carrot, shredded
