3~Ingredient Coleslaw Dressing

I just love a fresh, cold¬†coleslaw, don’t you? I know it’s traditionally a summer dish, but really, I just love it any time. And I wanted to share it with you – because it is so, so simple!

And delicious.

Of course!

My kids (like many, I suspect!) are kinda tricky with salads. For the longest time they refused to touch coleslaw. Which made me sad.

‘Cause I like coleslaw. A lot!

But this week when I made it, guess what?! I overheard my son saying; “Coleslaw! Yum!” As he took a good portion. I was dee-lighted! ūüėÄ

Tip: My sister adds a shredded apple to her coleslaw. It sweetens it a bit for those picky kids. I like it too, so sometimes I add an apple Рif I have one lying around.

All you have to is mix the sugar and mayo (or Miracle Whip, if you are like me!), then add the vinegar.

Done.

Store extra in fridge for later! Keeps up to two weeks.

Yum.

I know Рeasy, right?! Of course, you can add more spices if you like, but I never do.  Sometimes I add a bit of milk to thin it out.

Mix the dressing with shredded cabbage and you’re good to go. I like to sprinkle a bit of paprika over the top of the salad… dresses it up a bit.

We also like this dressing for regular salad too.

Yum.

    When I make Coleslaw I finely slice cabbage and add grated cheese, grated carrot, fresh sweet corn (just cooked and cooled) and garlic – then I add a couple of tablespoons of good quality mayonnaise, a dash of maple syrup and stir. It is so good!! I think I might make some tonight!!
