My red cabbage coleslaw is a sweet, light side that is perfect for any cookout. When it comes to coleslaw I’m a bit of a snob. I don’t like my coleslaw loaded with mayonnaise and I especially don’t like it if it doesn’t have a little sweet zip to it. My red cabbage coleslaw has both of these things. Plus, it’s so easy to put together.
The simplicity of this coleslaw comes from the ease of using the food processor. Riley loves making this coleslaw because she feels like an active participant in the process because she gets to push the button that does all the work on the food processor. Therefore, she has made the coleslaw, which is fine by me. I find that if she actively helps make something then she is more likely to eat it. Plus, she loved the fact that the coleslaw looked purple (Her favorite color is purple).
