    I love coleslaw but I rarely eat it as it’s not that healthy with all that mayonnaise but I love your version, much healthier! I need to try making it, sounds delicious.

    Oh I absolutely love coleslaw so delicious. Will book mark this one for sure for later. I have to try it out. I love making it homemade taste so much better. Thanks for hosting, sorry it’s been awhile haven’t had much time in the kitchen trying to work on that this summer.
