Dilled ColeSlaw for #CookoutWeek

Welcome to Day 2 of #Cookout Week.  Today I am featuring another great product from Swine Dining.  Swine dining is a barbecue restaurant located in Erie, PA and they have recently branched out to offer their spice mixes that are so popular in the restaurant.  You can learn more about them on their facebook page and you can purchase their products in their Etsy Shop.

#CookoutWeek is hosted by The PinterTest Kitchen.  They came up with this great idea, found fellow bloggers to join in the fun, rounded up sponsors to provide the bloggers with great products and our readers with this wonderful prize package and took care of all the administrative duties.  These ladies do all of this out of the goodness of their hearts to spread love to fellow bloggers and our followers. May all their good works come back to them tenfold.

Disclosure: I received free products from sponsors for this event.  I did not receive any monetary compensation. I was not asked or required to use the products for this event.  I chose to use this product for recipe development.  All opinions are 100% truthful and 100% my own. 

Today's recipe is the perfect accompaniment to whatever you have on the grill, from steaks to hotdogs to fish to chicken to portabellas, this slaw will fit right in.  

I made a typical coleslaw dressing from mayo and apple cider vinegar but instead of my normal seasonings I used Swine Dining Dilly Dust.  The dilly dust came in a plain container with no ingredients listed.  The folks at Swine Dining hadn't gotten that far in their production yet but wanted to get the product to us in time for #CookoutWeek. 

 I tasted the dust and found that it was salted so I didn't add any additional salt, just some fresh ground pepper, a little sugar and the dilly dust.  When I tasted it, I couldn't think of anything that could improve the flavor....it was perfect.

I whisked the dressing together and then added the slaw mix.  I bought premade mix in the interest of saving time since my food processor is one of the small appliances already packed away for the move.  I tossed until the vegetables were covered with the dressing and then garnished the slaw with some sliced scallions.  I think that I have found a new coleslaw recipe for this household.  I hope you enjoy it as much as we did.
