Creamy Coleslaw with Pickles Recipe

This is my first time making coleslaw. It's just not something I think of making often. Well, I decided to make some pulled pork sandwiches, and I knew I had to come up with a coleslaw recipe to go on the sandwiches. I also remembered my Dad saying he loves Popeye's coleslaw because it has pickles in it, so I knew that was gonna be my special ingredient. 

I absolutely love how this recipe turned out. I initially wanted to use Miracle Whip, but then after I got home from grocery shopping, and realized I had none. I had to go with mayo. It was fabulous and turned out just the way I imagined it would. The flavors are all great together and it topped my sandwich perfectly. This is a great recipe to bring to your next barbeque! Enjoy!!
