Backyard BBQ’s are a staple at my house. My husband loves to grill outside. Many times a week I can look out the backdoor and see him at the grill, which leaves me in charge of the sides. I love being in charge of sides. The side dishes are the icing on the cake. Of course coleslaw comes naturally with anything grilled.
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.
