Creamy Southern Style Coleslaw Recipe

This creamy Southern style, Caribbean inspired coleslaw recipe is an all time easy recipe. Only 5 ingredients! First, it's super creamy. Next, it's slightly tangy. And of course, Duke's Mayonnaise is still a must. Tip: finely shredded cabbage is best. My go to pre-packaged coleslaw mixes are the Fresh Express 3 Color Blend Coleslaw Mix or the Fresh Express Diced Southern Slaw Mix.
