Get ready to ditch jarred dressing because you can actually make your own homemade coleslaw dressing with just mayonnaise, vinegar and sugar. It's so much better than jarred dressings! This simple recipe is really all you need to bring out the natural flavors of the vegetables. In fact the vegetables bring out the flavor in the dressing and vice versa, so make sure to include the green peppers. In my opinion, that's what really makes this coleslaw awesome — the combination of these specific vegetables and the homemade dressing. So if you're using prepackaged coleslaw mix, make sure to add diced green peppers and onions.
My favorite way to eat coleslaw is with seasoned or waffle fries. I take my fries and dip them in the coleslaw and oh my goodness... my mouth is seriously watering right now just typing this. You just gotta try it. It's kinda like the fries dipped in a chocolate milkshake thing but ever so slightly more healthy.
