Does anyone have a recipe for coleslaw dressing?

It seems that everywhere I look, the recipe calls for bottled dressing. Does anyone make it from scratch?

  • Not totally from scratch - but our favorite is (sorry, no measurements, I'm a mix-n-taste kind of person) Miracle whip, a little milk, a little sugar, and black pepper.

  • 1/2 c. mayo, 3 tbs vinegar, 1-2 tbs sugar (to taste) , 1/2 small onion (grated), S&P to taste. Very basic but very good. This is enough for a 16 oz bag of cole slaw mix.

  • I make mine like bocamom, except I add some milk to thin down the mayo. We like a thinner dressing.

  • Red Cabbage Slaw with Peanut Sauce

    1 small clove garlic, peeled
    2-inch piece fresh ginger, cut into eight pieces (peeling unnecessary)
    1/3 cup unsalted, nonhydrogenated peanut butter
    1 1/2 Tbs. low-sodium tamari
    2 tsp. packed light brown sugar
    1 tsp. apple cider vinegar

    Red Cabbage Slaw
    1 8-oz. pkg. Oriental-style baked tofu, cut into 1/2-inch dice (optional)
    6 cups shredded red cabbage
    1 medium-sized carrot, peeled and grated
    1/2 cup thinly sliced green onions

    To make Peanut Dressing: Place garlic and ginger in mini-chopper beaker, and pulse until finely chopped. Add peanut butter, tamari, brown sugar, vinegar and 1/4 cup water, and blend until smooth. Thin with 1 Tbs. of water or more, if necessary, so that dressing is pourable
    To make Red Cabbage Slaw: Combine all ingredients. Pour dressing over salad, and toss to coat. Season to taste with salt and pep
