classic coleslaw

if there was one side dish that sums up summer, it has to be coleslaw.  it's perfect for a picnic, backyard BBQ & a neighbour block party.  of course coleslaw tastes even better when paired w/ my root beer pulled pork.  i'm just saying.
in any case this classic side dish is a crowd pleaser and a welcome accompaniment to any dinner, lunch, or social function.
it also means i'm holding on to summer with both hands!
