perfect coleslaw pulled pork

This is hands down the easiest, and most scrumptious way to do coleslaw. Adding in a grated apple adds a sweet and a delicious tang. Though this comes together in minutes, I highly recommend you chill for at least two hours in the refrigerator, but it’s best overnight. I think that’s the general rule with most cold salads! 😉

I love to pair this with pulled pork, or my favorite, Cajun Grilled Shrimp, but the options are endless. Enjoy, friends!
