Coleslaw is a great side dish year round. I have been making this recipe since I had a catering business in Atlanta. That was over 20 years ago. Now I make the same recipe for my family and friends. It’s got a good amount of sweetness and tang with a nice creamy texture mixed in with the cabbage. I think the secret is the Old Bay seasoning and the celery seed. I use a lower calorie and fat mayo that works. You really can’t tell the difference but, it makes a big difference in the fat and calories. So, hope you all enjoy!
