Creamy Chick-Fil-A Coleslaw

As Spring slowly and stubbornly makes her way to us we here in the Baking Bookworm household have been hankering for summery foods - burgers from the grill, corn-on-the-cob and homemade coleslaw. 

Mmm, coleslaw.  That creamy side dish that's perfect to go alongside sausage on a bun, pulled pork or burgers.  But please don't confuse it with the coleslaw that some restaurants slap on your plate as a 'garnish' to your main course. I'm talking about the kind of coleslaw that is deliciously creamy with a hint of sweetness that you order, eagerly scoop up and ask for more.  That's what this recipe is all about.

This recipe comes from the American restaurant franchise, Chick-Fil-A.  Admittedly I have never been to this fast-food restaurant but apparently they made a wicked good coleslaw which they have recently discontinued.  To appease the masses they have shared their coleslaw recipe which I thought was rather cool of them.

This is a super easy and oh so quick side dish to whip up.  I've made it twice in the last week.  Yup, we like it.  It can feed a small group (just half the recipe) or can easily be doubled (or more) for a large crowed. This recipe will be making a few appearances this summer on our patio.  Enjoy!

Spicy Potato Wedges

1 cup mayonnaise
4 tsp white vinegar
1/4 cup white sugar
1/4 tsp dried mustard (I increased this to 1/2 tsp)
1/4 tsp kosher salt
2 bags (14oz) each shredded cole slaw mix

Yield: 6-8 servings

In a medium bowl, combine mayonnaise, vinegar, sugar, mustard and salt.  Mix well.

Add coleslaw mix to a large bowl and remove any large chunks. Pour mayonnaise mixture over cole slaw and mix until well combined. 
Note: The mixture looks a little dry when you've first mixed it.  It comes out well after sitting but if you prefer a saucier coleslaw then try increasing the sauce ingredients by fifty percent.  I tried doubling the sauce the first time and it resulted it way too much liquid.

Cover and refrigerate for 2 hours or overnight - this will help the flavours to blend.  Keep refrigerated in a sealed container.  Stir well before serving.
