Creamy Coleslaw

If you are like my family, Independence day is spent with friends and family and lots of good food.....with the meats grilled out on the grill. Someone always brings a great potato salad and there is always a big pot of red beans and homemade breads. We all know of the wonderful desserts waiting to be finished off. I always like a cool vegetable salad of some kind also This coleslaw is so delicious and easy to make. A cool side for a hot afternoon of good fun! Enjoy

1/2 cup mayonnaise or salad dressing
1/4 cup sour cream
1 tablespoon sugar
2 teaspoons lemon juice
2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
1/2 teaspoon celery seed
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1/2 medium head cabbage, finely shredded or chopped (4 cups)
1 small carrot, shredded (1/2 cup)
1 small onion, chopped (1/4 cup)

Mix all ingredients except cabbage, carrot and onion in large glass or plastic bowl. Add remaining ingredients; toss until evenly coated.

Cover and refrigerate at least 1 hour to blend flavors. Cover and refrigerate any remaining salad.

This recipe for coleslaw sounds really delicious. I'll try this out on my company. Thank you for sharing it with us. I hope you had a great 4th of July and will have a wonderful weekend. Blessings, Brenda. I heard over the national news that it's really hot in Texas. I hope you'll get some cooler weather.
