A Homemade Creamy Cole Slaw recipe is a staple for any summer menu plan and ours is so easy you could teach your children to make it.
I think you’ll find our Homemade Creamy Cole Slaw recipe to be super easy to make, with only 4 ingredients, and a nice addition to your summer menu planning. We’re serving it twice on this week’s menu.
I’m premeditating leftovers for our pasta chicken salad planned for our Monday menu so I’m tossing a whole chicken in the crockpot for Sunday dinner. Cook once, eat twice! Our Crockpot Roasted Chicken & Vegetables is not a heavy meal and it is a one pot dinner.
Carrots, onions, potatoes and chicken sounds good to me! If you’d like something green, toss some broccoli in the pot about half way through the cooking time.
Be sure you saved some chicken from the Sunday dinner menu for today’s salad. This is a quick, easy and light meal which we always enjoy. I serve my Parmesan Chicken & Veggie Pasta Salad on a bed of lettuce. Go here for another yummy idea using a box of Suddenly Salad.
BLT’s are a summer staple here in the south! Adding them to the summer menu once a week is a pleasure in my home.
There is no ‘recipe’ per se for BLT’s. We cook our bacon in the oven. I like to crisp the lettuce after washing it by placing a few ice cubes on it while the bacon is cooking. I allow the ice cubes to sit for about 10 minutes and then place the lettuce on paper towels to dry. We slather lots of Duke’s mayonnaise on our plain bread and layer the ingredients; lettuce then tomatoes and finally the bacon! I like mine light on the salt and heavy on the pepper. How do you make yours?
Since we already have bacon on our minds from Tuesday nights dinner, let’s go ahead and add it to the Wednesday menu as well. Our Broccoli, Bacon & Raisin Salad makes a number of appearances on our summer menu. We love this salad!
We’ve had chicken on our menu two nights and bacon on our menu two nights so we’re going meatless tonight! We love this recipe for Sweet & Salty Strawberry Watermelon Salad. Those candied pecans combined with the feta and red onions create such a flavor explosion! It’s a perfect summer menu option.
Although Friday night is frequently date night, we’re staying in. I’m stopping by the Kroger on the way home to grab a Rotisserie chicken and Hawaiian rolls! I’ll make this super easy recipe for Homemade Creamy Cole Slaw and dinner will be served!
- 1 bag of Cole Slaw mix (found int he produce department)
- 1 Tbsp. Apple cider vinegar
- ¾ Cup mayonaisse
- 3 Tbsp. sugar
- Blend the last 3 ingredients together in a cup until sugar is dissolved.
- Pour your cole slaw mix into a bowl.
- Pour the dressing mix into the slaw and stir well.
- Cover and set in the refrigerator for about 30 minutes prior to serving.
- If you think it needs a little more mayo, add it but the slaw will get a little more creamy as it sits in the refrigerator. Be sure to stir again, just before serving.
- Serve and enjoy.
Home grilled hot dogs on a summer Saturday menu is almost mandatory, isn’t it?
We have that fresh Homemade Creamy Cole Slaw in the refrigerator from yesterday and hot dogs are a favorite at our house! The photo above is from Frank Allen’s in Pigeon Forge on our Hot Dog Tour! I told you we love hot dogs, we even hunt them down when traveling.
Menu planning helps to manage the household budget. When you take the time to plan ahead, you won’t be as likely to add too many items to the shopping cart at the grocery store. Type ‘menu plan’ into the search box in the top right of this blog for more of our menu planning ideas.
