Mayo, vinegar, salt and pepper. Maybe a splash of lemon or lime juice if I have it. I do it by sight.

Cole Slaw Dressing Recipe

Cole Slaw

Tangy Cole Slaw

D. Rattray
An easy cole slaw dressing, this is enough to dress about 1 medium head of shredded or chopped cabbage.

Ingredients:

  • 1 1/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup cider vinegar
  • 1/4 teaspoon celery seed
  • 1/2 teaspoon Creole seasoning or seasoned salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • salt, to taste

Preparation:

Combine all ingredients in a jar; shake well. Refrigerate for about an hour; dress shredded cabbage. This makes enough for about 1 medium head of cabbage. I add a little grated carrot and onion to the mixture, or you could use green cabbage with a little red cabbage.

Simple...LOVE coleslaw, especially with sloppy joe's! Mayo (a better, thick, rich like Best Foods/Hellmann's) Salt Pepper Squirt of lemon juice (you don't want it too runny) Optional: A pinch of Coriander (good with cucumbers, too) or, my favorite..... Chili powder to taste (it doesn't make it spicy, just mellows out the eggs in the mayo) plus gives it a little color. I'm curious about the other suggestions....may have to try some of them out! P.S.- If you like juicy coleslaw, then grate your own cabbage and carrots. If you like it a little stiffer, buy the dryer, precut/prepackaged ready to mix coleslaw.

Mayonnaise with cream added to thin it down. It's as simple as that.

Amber's Slaw

1 pkg old fashioned coleslaw mix (only use as much as you need)

2 slices of tomato (averge thickness)... diced

2 green onions ... diced (I use the whole thing)

The following is "to your taste" b/c I never measure it:

Mayo

Mustard (go very lightly on this)

Salad dressing (my secret ingredient): 

    blue cheese or ranch (bacon or cucumber is best, but plain works)

Salt

Pepper

Basil

Sugar

You can cut up the stuff from the bag or leave it uncut ... I do both depending on my mood. Add tomato and onion, stir. Add mayo, mustard, salad dressing, stir. Then add the rest. 


I get told that I have to either bring my slaw or don't bother showing up when it comes to cookouts or family dinners.
