Easy Garden Coleslaw - The Southern Lady Cooks


This delicious garden coleslaw is so easy to make and great for any summer gathering. Simple ingredients with big taste! Very versatile since you can add any extra vegetables you love. This slaw is also great on a burger or bbq sandwich since it’s so creamy.

Easy Garden Coleslaw Ingredients needed:

Green Cabbage

Sweet Peppers (yellow, red, and green)


White Onion


Whipping Cream


Apple Cider Vinegar

Pepper to taste

Recipe Notes: We love the addition of whipping cream in this recipe. Many coleslaw recipes only use mayonnaise or sour cream, the whipping cream gives this dish such a creamy flavor. This slaw is delicious on a burger or hotdog too!

If you also like a vinegar-style coleslaw you will love this Old Fashioned Ice-Box Coleslaw. For a twist on a classic, you can always make this delicious Apple Coleslaw.
