When it comes to potlucks and BBQ’s two side dishes are always present. Those would be baked beans and coleslaw. Baked beans are ok, but I prefer this bean salad with edamame. Coleslaw is good too, but a really memorable coleslaw is hard to find. I’m not a fan of the limp, milky coleslaw you get at some restaurants. I like vibrant, fresh tasting coleslaw with some flavor and personality!
Easy Coleslaw Recipe
This easy coleslaw recipe I’m sharing with you today has lots of both; personality and flavor! I know most coleslaws have shredded carrots, but this one is all green. I used both cabbage and iceberg lettuce in this recipe. Cabbage naturally has some bite to it while the iceberg tastes mild and fresh. Naturally I added bacon to this coleslaw recipe because everything is better with bacon.
The dressing for this slaw is super simple. It is somewhat of a combination of mayo based slaw dressings and it’s vinegar counterparts. White vinegar and mayo are both present as is dried ranch seasoning mix.
The special ingredient in this unique coleslaw is LAYS Potato Chips. The idea loosely comes from this Ramen Broccoli Salad; I absolutely loved the crunch from the ramen noodles and thought potato chips would deliver the crunch I was looking for along with that distinguished LAYS Potato Chip flavor. Since the quantity of the dressing is light, the chips don’t get soggy. Each bite gives you unexpected flavor between the ranch seasoning, the bacon, and the crunchy potato chips!
There is a method to assembling this coleslaw, however. I arranged half of the slaw on a serving platter, layered a generous handful of LAYS Potato Chips, followed by another layer of slaw and potato chips. I drizzled my dressing over top and tossed it all lightly with salad tongs.
This slaw is so simple and can be transported anywhere people love good food! With this easy recipe, I’m ready for all the BBQ’s and potlucks I can find!
