Is this an easy homemade coleslaw recipe?I think you will be surprised at how easy it is to make homemade coleslaw. The prices of prepared salads, like coleslaw, are quite expensive at my local grocery store. Making my own coleslaw recipe at home, saves time and money. It takes almost no effort to make a big batch of this healthy coleslaw and after just an hour or so in the fridge it’s ready to eat!
Why should I make coleslaw homemade?Making your own coleslaw at home can save time, money and you have full control of all the ingredients in your recipe.
Can I prep this easy coleslaw recipe in advance?You may need to do some planning in preparation for this coleslaw recipe because it really should chill for at least one hour before serving. You can also prepare it up to a day ahead of time and it will still taste and look great!
How do I make this homemade coleslaw dressing?First you will need to whisk all of the sauce or dressing ingredients together in a large bowl. This OXO balloon whisk just feels right in my hand. It’s used to whip up everything from sauces to eggs to pancakes. Whisks and rubber spatulas are two kitchen tools I couldn’t live without. After you dressing ingredients are well blended, you will add your prepackaged coleslaw mix.
Can I make my own coleslaw mix or do I have to use prepackaged?You can definitely shred your own vegetables for this coleslaw if you want! I can usually grab a bag or two of pre-packed mix at my local grocery store so it saves me time and effort. If you have the time and the ingredients there’s no reason not to shred the veggies up yourself and make this an even more homemade version of my favorite homemade coleslaw. Once upon a time, I would have shredded my own cabbage and carrots. Nowadays I usually stick to the prepackaged coleslaw mix. It’s a bit more colorful with the purple cabbage, green cabbage and carrots all mixed together. Plus, there’s less clean-up time. I’ll have to confess that I am a mess in the kitchen, and buying the bagged mix saves me so much time. Cleaning up my food processor takes up a lot of my time, so I prefer not to use it for shredding cabbage for this coleslaw recipe.
