St. Patrick's Day Recipes - Home Made Irish Slaw
Irish Food Ideas - Salads and Side Dishes

Home > Holidays > St. Patrick's Day > Irish Recipes > Side Dishes > Home Made Irish Slaw

Be sure to use fresh cabbage and a fresh carrot when making this slaw. The slaw tastes best when the cabbage and carrot have a crunch to them. Do not refrigerate more than 6 hours or the buttermilk will soak into the vegetables and make them mushy.
