Classic Coleslaw | #coleslaw #picnic #bsinthekitchen

The perfect sidekick to any picnic gathering, this coleslaw builds off of the previous post for Homemade Mayonnaise, using it as the base for the coleslaw dressing. I’m going to keep it classic with this coleslaw, using cabbage, carrot, and chives for some subtle onion flavour.
