Delicious Non-Sweet Creamy Homemade Coleslaw
I’m going to probably surprise a lot of people here.
I don’t really like coleslaw.
At least I didn’t before this particular non sweet homemade coleslaw happened in my kitchen.
You see, I’m really not a huge fan of super sweet coleslaw. In fact, for the longest time I thought I hated all of it, even homemade coleslaw. Except that wasn’t it – the biggest problem was, I was eating versions of it with so much sugar in it, it was just too sweet for me. I wanted to like it. I really, really did.
But when I ate it, I could tell it was the sweetness I didn’t like – not the rest of the combination of flavors.
Yes, I know – I’m weird. I can’t really explain why I don’t like super sweet coleslaw but I don’t. Mildly sweet coleslaw is okay sometimes but the stuff you get at restaurants or in the deli department is usually much too sweet for my taste.
When I started to ask others how they felt about coleslaw, I was surprised by how many other people didn’t like coleslaw and said it was too sweet for them. Some mentioned the fact that those veggies shouldn’t really be that sweet together. I certainly agreed.
I knew it was time to do something about that though.
So I set out to create a Non Sweet Creamy Coleslaw that I could enjoy.
I think I did pretty good if I do say so myself.
This recipe tastes great with a side of baked beans, with some burgers or even pulled pork sandwiches.
On Sunday I will be posting a fantastic recipe we made to serve this with. I am excited to share it.
So do you like your coleslaw sweet or non sweet?
