How to Make Ladies Auxiliary Coleslaw with Raisins and Carrots

Updated on April 9, 2014

Great Sidedish for Pork Barbecue

I love the coleslaw served with chicken and dumplings served at the local firehouse dinners by the ladies Auxiliary. This is my version which, when I prepare pork barbecue, I always serve as a sidedish, along with my Sweet and Savory Baked Beans. The best pork barbecue sandwich always has slaw on the pork!

      Great recipe but one suggestion I only used about. 1-2 tablespoons of mayonnaise , and thank goodness I did because it was wet enough and tastes great

      Thank you phdast7, this is an old recipe that I play around with a lot. I just modified it again, by the way, by adding 2 types of cabbage and a walnut garnish. Appreciate the comments.

      Your coleslaw looks fabulous and it reminds me of the coleslaw my maternal grandmother used to make amd it was delicious. :) SHARING
