    Potato salad by a country mile. I'll do hot slaw most any time there's hot slaw to be had...but the one and only time I ever eat cole slaw is more or less as a condiment on a pulled pork sandwich.

    This should be one of the most lopsided decisions in the history of BGP.

    The only answer is potato salad.

    Yes potato salad!

    However..... this is the best time of year to eat coleslaw. Love fresh, homemade coleslaw from cabbages grown in someone’s garden, yum! Just had some this weekend lol.

    Depends on what I am eating as the main entree.

    Chicken and Beef, potato salad.

    Pork and fish, cole slaw.

    Potato Salad all day every day. But it has to be my mother's potato salad. I haven't found any other potato salad that's even close to her's.

    Potato salad with Kremer's being at the top of the list, even though I haven't had it for years.
    I do like cole slaw though. One grandmother made the best traditional cole slaw. The other grandmother made the best hot slaw.

    Cole slaw.

    Blue Ash Chili makes a "slaw dog". Hotdog bun, hotdog, mustard, chili, and cole slaw. Sloppiness, but oh so delicious.

    I highly recommend this one. Got the recipe from a neighbor. It's best if you make it the night/day before just because the ingredients mixed together to make the ranch dressing (sugar, salt/pepper, garlic clove, mayo, buttermilk, and vinegar) are much better the next day after they've had time for all of the flavors to combine together.

    1 garlic clove, minced
    2/3 cup mayonnaise
    1/4 cup buttermilk
    2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
    1 teaspoon sugar
    Salt & pepper, to taste

    1) Cube potatoes, and boil until fork-soft, drain, and allow to cool.
    2) Fry the bacon - crispier is better. Allow to cool and cut into bacon bits.
    3) In a small bowl, combine mayonnaise, buttermilk, vinegar, garlic, and sugar.
    4) In a larger mixing bowl, combine potatoes, bacon bits, celery, and green onion, before pouring the mayo/buttermilk/vinegar/garlic/sugar mixture over it all and mixing to combine.
    5) Add salt and pepper, to taste.

    I'm with SR on this one. I like both, but would choose one over the other depending on the main course.

    If it's bbq, it's cole slaw.

    Burgers and dogs, potatoe salad.

    I do eat slaw much more often though, so I chose slaw. Personally, macaroni salad is my favorite.

    I’m very picky with both, so it depends. I don’t like mustard potato salad and I don’t like cole slaw made with vinegar.

    However, given the best of both, I’d pick loaded red potato salad.
