Green Onion Coleslaw

So my go to move when I go to a party if I am short on time and short on cash is to bring my own coleslaw. Bringing coleslaw to a party is great because the ingredients are cheap and its super easy to throw together. Even though its not the fanciest dish to make it is a staple at parties and the fact that your making it and not buying it will definitely earn you some chef kudos. My coleslaw is sweet but not super sweet because I add a little more vinegar and a little less sugar, and the green onions add a little flavor and some color. I won't lie I do buy the cabbage and carrots already shredded but that just cuts back on time. You can always buy the cabbage and carrots and shred them yourself as well.
