  9. I quite literally love a bit of coleslaw; I've made it once. I love the idea of adding onion powder. I am not keen on the texture so I'd make the coleslaw without but still get the benefit of the taste. ONCE AGAIN: genius.

    • I’m so happy you enjoyed this recipe, Jenna! We LOVE this coleslaw. One time I made a different coleslaw recipe, to try something new. My boyfriend said “make the other one” when I got around to making more for our next BBQ.

      Thanks for stopping by to let me know you enjoyed the recipe. :)

  22. Just made this to go with dinner and it is great. Used fresh cabbage and carrots so wasn’t sure how much was in a bag so I just added more as needed for the amount of sauce. Perfect for me and the kids and adding a little hot sauce for him. Love it.
