This simple slaw is the best and it perfectly accompanies our favorite Carolina shredded pork BBQ sandwiches, or it works on its own as an easy summer side dish.  Adapted from Pure Willingham.


  • 1 large head green cabbage, cored and shredded (about 3 pounds)
  • 1 small carrot, shredded
  • 1 small sweet onion, such as Vidalia or Walla Walla, diced
  • 1 cup kicked up Garden Club Slaw Dressing, recipe follows
  • 1 tablespoon prepared mustard or Willingham’s Old Phartz Mustard
  • 1 tablespoon dill pickle juice
