Backyard BBQ’s are a staple at my house. My husband loves to grill dinner for us. Many times a week I can look out the backdoor and see him at the grill, which leaves me in charge of the sides. Who can complain? I love being in charge of only the sides. The side dishes are the icing on the cake. Of course, coleslaw comes naturally with anything grilled and my Homemade Coleslaw Dressing is one of the best!
I always make our own coleslaw dressing. I have never bought store bought coleslaw dressing. Not that I think it is bad, it is just so much easier and cheaper to whip up a bowl of dressing and grab a bag of coleslaw mix at the grocery store. For a couple dollars, I have a family size portion of coleslaw that tastes better than any pre-made you can ever buy.

Courses sidedish, d.i.y.
Whisk together all of the ingredients. I usually buy a small 8 oz can of pineapple tidbits for the juice. Then the kids love to eat the pineapple bits.
Pour the dressing over a bag of shredded coleslaw. Allow to sit a few minutes and serve.
This Homemade Rib Rub is great not just on ribs, but on chicken and more!
