Easy Creamy Coleslaw

Store bough coleslaw is just not the same as when you make it yourself and to be honest, it really doesn't take more than 5 minutes to make (well, about an hour if you chill it). The proof of how awesome this coleslaw tastes is the comment made by one of our houseguests: "I hate coleslaw, it's disgusting. Ok, I'll try it..WOW! That's really good!". As my 5-year old nephew says, "Try it...you might like it!". I wish I could take credit for this simple recipe, but I can't. I found it on a site that featured one of Mr. Food's approved recipes: Mr. Food Coleslaw
The only thing I added was some freshly ground pepper. The key to this recipe is to make the coleslaw and then let it sit in the fridge for about an hour, so that the liquid ingredients soak up the slaw mixture. Just letting it sit for an hour lets the flavors blend beautifully. Hope you enjoy! To print this recipe, click here Easy Creamy Coleslaw
Ingredients:
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1/3 cup milk
1 teaspoon white vinegar
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
freshly ground pepper (use your judgment on amount)
1 (16 oz) package cabbage coleslaw mix ( I prefer the tri-colored mix, with carrots, cabbage and red cabbage)
Directions:
1) In a medium mixing bowl, combine the mayonnaise, milk, vinegar, sugar, salt and freshly ground pepper. Mix well with a whisk until creamy and smooth.
2) In a large bowl, add the packaged coleslaw mix, then pour the medium mixing bowl mixture on top of the coleslaw mix. Stir well, cover with foil or plastic wrap and chill in the fridge for at least an hour. **The mixture might not seem creamy just yet, that is why you have to chill it. Once chilled, it will be nice and creamy!**
3) Serve and enjoy!
