Summer Cole Slaw Dressing

I love this slaw, I make an entire recipe and a double batch of the dressing every time (I like the dressing on regular salad too). There is just enough creaminess from the sour cream to keep it from being a vinaigrette, with the perfect tang from the vinegar and warm nuttiness from the sesame oil. It is a home run!!!

Helpful Tips to make Summer Cole Slaw:

  • Double the dressing, trust me it is so good you will find things to put it on.
  • You can use mayonnaise, Greek yogurt or sour cream in the dressing.
  • Keep the dressing seperate until ready to serve. I like to keep it in a mason jar.
