Simple Coleslaw

Good doesn’t have to be complicated, time-consuming, or precious.  Proof in point:


Feeling a little shut in from the winter, and reminiscent of warmer days with BBQ meals, we enjoyed some of this classic coleslaw last night atop of shredded pork sandwiches.  This very classic ‘slaw is a dependable favourite and is so because of the ideal balance of tangy and sweet.
