Real Italian Coleslaw

  • by

I hate to burst your bubble, but if your coleslaw has a white, creamy mayonnaise based sauce, then you’re doing it all wrong.  This makes a great Old Style Coleslaw that you can throw on your sandwich along with FrenchFries to make a Primanti’s type of meal, or as a side dish to your next BBQ or get together or you can just enjoy it as a healthy snack.
