@yumdelish - I agree that there is a lot of work involved in making some things from scratch, but it doesn't have to be that way. The best recipe for coleslaw I've ever used involves several vegetables. The trick is to buy them ready prepared!
In my opinion the stores sell them, so someone must be buying them. No need to feel guilty, so long as you can afford to pay a little extra for the convenience.
I buy basic coleslaw ingredients such as shredded cabbage, salad greens, bell pepper, green onions and celery all chopped and shredded. (Okay, I'll admit I buy, wash and slice the carrot myself, but that's quite an easy task.) You can play around with the quantities of vegetables, according to taste.
For the dressing I mix a teaspoon of vinegar with a little sugar, salt and pepper. If it's for adults only I add some horseradish.
You can relax and enjoy the praise that comes from sharing good food. It's a win-win situation in my opinion.
