Sweet & Spicy Coleslaw

This post contains affiliate links.
While backyard barbecues and holiday gatherings may be a bit different this year, the food remains the same. I have been craving summer food like ribs on the grill, mounds of potato salad, deviled eggs, and coleslaw. Inasmuch as coleslaw is perfectly good on its own, I find I like it more as a sandwich topper. If you have never tried that, put a mound on top of a barbecued beef sandwich, burger, or, as I have done here, a homemade Sloppy Joe. It is so good. This is my favorite recipe for coleslaw. It was inspired by of Bobby Flay's recipe. As simple as it looks, it has a lot of flavor.

Sweet & Spicy Coleslaw
Inspired by Bobby Flay

1 sm. head green cabbage, finely shredded
1 large carrot, finally shredded
1/3 c. Duke’s mayonnaise
1 T. sour cream

Melissa's shallot 
2 T. granulated sugar
1 T. cider vinegar
1 t.
dry mustard
1 t. celery salt
Freshly ground black pepper

Combine all ingredients in a large bowl and stir to combine. Refrigerate at least an hour before serving, preferably overnight.
