Canadian Coleslaw

I call this Canadian coleslaw because the first time I had it my Uncle Edwin made it.

It really is more of a northern recipe than a southern one.

It goes real well with the slow cooker pork sandwiches.

Now putting coleslaw on your pork sandwich really is a southern thing. However, this slaw goes really well with the pork.

What is particularly good about this coleslaw is that it has no vinegar so it is not tart. It has more of a creamy sweet taste to it.

Although it does go well with pork it would go well with just about anything.

    I love how the poppy seeds just make this slaw pop!

    Being originally from Canada; I can vouch for the fact that Canadians love Miracle Whip. Did you know that, or is it coincidence? Either way it looks yummo.
