Crunchy Sweet Cole Slaw

I have never been a fan of Cole slaw but in the last couple of years my husband and older son have gotten to me to try making our own Cole slaw a few times and while I still can't claim I LOVE it, I have made up a recipe that I enjoy.

It's so easy to make and I do like the tangy sweetness of our modified recipe.  I hope you do too.


2- 14 ounce bags Cole Slaw mix
1 cup mayonnaise
1 tsp. yellow mustard
4 Tablespoons cider vinegar
1/4 cup granulated sugar
Salt and pepper to taste

Assembly takes just minutes too!

I add the two bags of slaw mix to one of my Tupperware bowls and set it aside.

In another smaller bowl I whisk together the mayonnaise, mustard, vinegar, and sugar.

When it's all mixed together I pour the mixture over the Cole slaw and give it a good stir.  I then sprinkle a bit of salt and pepper on too.   The cabbage will look very dry and you might think you need more dressing but if you let it sit for just a few hours you'll have the perfect Cole slaw combination!

I know it looks dry; but just wait!

I typically prepare my Cole slaw in the morning and we eat if for dinner but even just a few hours later the Cole slaw looked good.   Moist but not soupy, crunchy and tangy and just a bit sweet.

We made this to serve with our air fried potatoes and breaded haddock.

What do you enjoy eating Cole slaw with?


  1. This is similar to my grandma's recipe only she shredded the cabbage and carrots. I am going to try this and see!

    1. I thought about shredding the cabbage and carrots in the food processor but it's so much quicker to buy them.

  2. This looks so tasty. I love home made coleslaw :) Thanks for sharing at Creative Mondays, hope you can join us again at another party soon.

  3. We will love your cole slaw, the dressing looks delicious! Hope you have a great Valentine Week and thanks so much for sharing with us at Full Plate Thursday!
