This healthy classic style coleslaw is equally at home atop our Healthy Fried Fish Sandwiches or alongside the standard BBQ dinner along with Peachy BBQ Pork Sandwiches and Cowboy Baked Beans.

Unseasoned coleslaw mixes (without dressing) are readily available in most grocery stores year ’round. They’re slightly more expensive than buying, say, a head of green cabbage and shredding it yourself, but they’re still pretty reasonably priced. Of course, shredding a head of green cabbage is still an option, and an extremely budget-friendly one at that. (Actually, you’ll probably only need a half a head for this recipe.)

This recipe is gluten free and so easy to throw together. You’ll want to make it again and again!
