No, although there is nothing better than freshly shredded cabbage, you can easily purchase bags of pre-shredded cabbage.

If you’re looking for the perfect side dish to serve at your next cookout, coleslaw is a great option. But what goes best with coleslaw? Some people might say that it pairs well with ribs or chicken, while others might argue that it’s best served with burgers or hot dogs. So what’s the right answer?

Well, it depends on your personal preference. But in general, most people seem to think that coleslaw pairs well with just about anything! So don’t be afraid to experiment a little and see what you like best. 😉

Coleslaw is one of those foods that are best when eaten fresh, after marinating for 2 hours. If you have any leftovers place them into an airtight container, and they will last for 2 to 3 days.
