Mexican Coleslaw


Some days the side dishes are the star of the show. I am always looking for something new. When I first mentioned this both of my kids groaned when I said coleslaw. They both don’t care for the mayonnaise based sauce. But, I told them this had more sour cream than mayonnaise they were interested.

Verdict:

This was so good! It still had the sauce base but the spices made it so flavorful that both kids actually ate a whole serving. For my son to eat a whole serving of something with beans is almost unheard of so this had to be good.

I served this for a picnic with brats and a green salad.

  3. I just jumped back to the previous post for some garlic potatoes au gratin. The Mexican coleslaw will have to wait until tomorrow, after shopping day.
