Color Cole Slaw is one of my favorite favorite side dishes ever!! Super easy to make (okay so the shredding of the veggies could be a little easier if you used a food processor OR just buy a couple of bags of dry cole slaw) and so refreshing AND not to mention pretty! I love colorful food! You might begin to see a pattern with my recipes…

It’s as easy as athering your needed items. Shred your veggies or buying two bags of dry cole slaw mix & dumping in a bowl. And making a super easy dressing. I LOVE to make most of my sauces/dressings myself! They just plain taste better than store bought and most of the ingredients you need, you already have in your fridge! They also don’t have all the yucky added preservatives and you can spicy it up! 

Salt & Pepper to taste and you are ready to go! This Colorful Cole Slaw recipe goes great with my Sweet Southern BBQ Sauce & baked or bbqed chicken or pork!

I love how versital this recipe is! It makes such a great side to any summer meal. Also, it’s low carb so it works great as a THM S from your Trim Healthy Mama lifestyle. Trim Healthy Mama works so well because you get to eat your rich low carb fats and then after three hours you switch it up with a good healthy carb! It’s so enjoyable, you don’t feel like you are on a diet!
