Tangy Coleslaw Recipe
Tossing a bit of cabbage with a prepared dressing is the easiest side dish you could imagine for your next camping trip. Making a fresh dressing is almost as easy, lots healthier and way tastier than using a store-bought dressing. I like to mix this tangy coleslaw recipe at home and toss with veggies at the campsite. The sugar makes this dressing slightly sweet while the horseradish gives it a surprising tangy punch. It is a great flavor to combine with a sweeter main dish like BBQ ribs because it provides a nice balance of flavors. Oh the tang of horseradish … there is nothing quite like it. Here’s how you make it, serves about 6. Psst we’re compensated…see our disclosures.

Making this Tangy Coleslaw Recipe Slaw Dressing at home is easy, just transport to the campsite in a food storage container with a tight fitting lid and then toss with shredded cabbage at the campsite a few hours before your meal. Having various sizes of food containers in a set helps to eliminate excess bulk while packing because you can use the perfect size of container for the quantity of food you are transporting. I also love the “nesting” capacity of these containers for bringing the empties back home.

We love using our Ice Cube Roller Cooler to transport cold food items to our campsite! It has a push button locking telescopic reinforced tow handle and durable wheels so you can easily move a heavy cooler. We also love the side scoop handles for getting a good grip when lifting the cooler. Once at the campsite, we use ours as a “side table with drink holders” set between our camp chairs. It’s perfect for keeping this Tangy Coleslaw Recipe cold along with your favorite sodas and brews!

This camping plate is the picture-perfect vessel to enjoy this Tangy Coleslaw Recipe and hearty sandwich for dinner!
This salad pairs well with some of my favorite sandwich recipes:
