This easy creamy cole slaw recipe makes a perfect side dish for everything from bbq chicken to pulled pork to burgers and hot dogs.

This recipe is also endlessly open to variation. Try adding shredded apples or zucchini (squeeze dry with a paper towel), salted cashews, thinly-sliced radishes or even raisins.

I like to use a cole slaw mix that has purple cabbage and carrots as well as green cabbage for this recipe. The different color and layers of flavor make this cole slaw a perfect addition to any summer meal.
