Last year for the fourth of July I made a Napa Slaw with Spring Radishes and Sesame Peanut Dressing. It was absolutely delicious but this year I was craving good old fashioned classic coleslaw. I used to the stuff at barbecues because of the mayonnaise, but once I discovered you can make your own healthy version of mayonnaise at home, a whole new world opened up to me! If made from scratch, mayonnaise at it’s heart is nothing more than egg whites and oil. If not made from scratch, you may be ingesting at all kinds of additives, preservatives, and hydrogenated oils. Not ingredients that actually improve the flavor of mayonnaise or coleslaw at all!
This classic coleslaw recipe is super simple, and it definitely satiated my craving… just like mom used to make.
