In my opinion, a creamy, crunchy coleslaw is as close to a perfect side dish as it gets. It pairs well with so many dishes: grilled or baked chicken, pulled pork, salmon, mahi or really any fish, on top of shrimp tacos, or my favorite, straight out of the bowl as I pass by the fridge.

It is tossed in a tangy, creamy dressing.
It is sweet, tart and healthy all at the same time.
It lasts in the fridge for days.
I have been making coleslaw in two ways for years: either tossed with a homemade mayonnaise dressing or an apple cider vinegar-based dressing.

So I got to work testing variations of a creamy, yet mayo-free slaw. And wow, to my amazement I had great success! Dare I say, this coleslaw might be my favorite!
