Easy ColeSlaw Recipe

We’re in the middle of a small remodel so I have been out-of-sorts all week.

I seriously am amazed by the work going on and I can’t wait to share with you the before and after pictures. Anyhow, Mr. Bejelly and I wanted to make a lunch for the crew who decided to work on Saturday so they could take advantage of the sunshine as they build the deck.     They don’t work weekends so we wanted to say “Thank you” with a meal.

I woke up at 5:00 a.m. and put a pork shoulder on the Traeger ( I seasoned it the night before) and decided at the last-minute to throw together a simple paleo coleslaw recipe.

I used apples to keep the sugar content down. I did add two tablespoons of maple syrup only because I was feeding guests. If it was just us, I would skip it, as the apples are all the sweetness we need.
