Coleslaw is a common side dish for a lot of different American foods. The ingredients can vary a little bit but at its most basic is a mixture of green cabbage, mayonnaise, and sour cream. I used a squeeze of lemon, but you can also use a little white vinegar for acidity. There are other variations that use celery seed, mustard and red cabbage as well. I liked how it turned out and in the future I might try those other ingredients and compare. I am looking forward to having this with barbeque pulled pork sandwiches!
