This is my "go to" slaw recipe, the one I always make when time is short. Simple and straightforward, it's a great accompaniment to all those summer barbecues. Grating the onion seasons the dressing without having to bite into chunks of raw onion. —inpatskitchen

I think I get my love for food and cooking from my mom, who was an amazing cook. She would start baking and freezing a month before Christmas in order to host our huge open house on Christmas afternoon. I watched and I learned...to this day I try not to procrastinate when it comes to entertaining. My cooking style is pretty much all over the place, although I'm definitely partial to Greek and Italian cuisine. Oh yes, throw a little Cajun in there too!
