People who like cole slaw fall into one of two categories: they either like tangy vinegar-based slaw, or creamy mayo-based slaw.  Until now.  This recipe is the great unifier, bringing together all of the goodness of each type of slaw.  There’s a slight bite of vinegar, but it also is creamy and coats the cabbage like only mayo can do.  It’s also a bit lighter than your typical cole slaw recipe – it’s not perfect, but I never want to sacrifice taste just to make something totally healthy.  And when it comes to something like cole slaw, which is so closely associated with good memories like BBQs, summer, family, and casual get togethers, you just can’t screw it up.
