Coleslaw ingredients, in other words. This coleslaw is extra colorful, with carrots and red cabbage, and extra flavorful, with a homemade dressing that includes sour cream, mustard, vinegar, and enough sugar to make it go down sweetly. Best of all, if you’re really pressed for time, you can use a bag of ready-made coleslaw mix from the store.  From the Inn Above Onion Creek Bed & Breakfast in Kyle, Texas, where you’ll enjoy the best of the old and the new.
