Last time I made the crockpot BBQ shredded chicken I used this amazing coleslaw as the side. BBQ tends to be a little sweet because of all the sugar in the sauce, so something tangy is the perfect accompaniment.
I’m not a fan of the overly soupy commercially made coleslaws so I was excited to discover the dressing for this was the perfect amount.
Its a simple mix of mayo, red wine vinegar, lemon juice, and a little sugar.
