This is a pretty classic recipe and is delicious and easy to make. You should let it sit for about 2 hours - longer is better. It can even be made the day before. Back home a barbeque just wouldn't be a barbeque with coleslaw. Check out my recipe for Quick Pickles to go with your burgers.
I suggest Hellmans mayonnaise because unlike Swedish brands is mayonnaise and not dressing, and has no sugar in it. I find Hellmans at my local ICA Supermarket.

A Quick Note

I wanted to take a minute to say that I do try and weigh as many of the ingredients as I can. I think it helps make recipe results more consistent. Of course professional bakers even measure liquids by weight. I don't mind pulling out my little digital scale when I need to.
