Coleslaw has been appearing more frequently on our dining tables with good reason—if you’re serving fried food and need a tasty contrast to the crispness and grease on your plate, nothing comes quite as close as coleslaw to giving your tastebuds a delightful mouthful. Coleslaw comes in a variety of recipes, but the main objective is always to have something creamy and a bit sweet as a treat beside your chicken skin. Sometimes sour, more often toothsomely sweet, coleslaw also includes vegetables for a bit of crunch—and perhaps to soothe your conscience for eating something so indulgently delicious!
This coleslaw recipe marries the smoothness of mayonnaise and whipping cream with the sweetness of pineapples and raisins, and the staple coleslaw ingredients of shredded cabbage and sliced carrots to perk up your plate. It’s a breeze to whip up for even the most tired cook, and a perfect side dish in any meal.
