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!
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! 😀
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 – if 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.
I know – easy, 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 like this dressing for regular salad too.
- ½ cup mayonnaise or whipped salad dressing
- 2 TBSP sugar
- 2 TBSP vinegar
- Mix the mayo and sugar.
- Add vinegar and mix well.
- Add milk as desired to thin. (optional)
- Pour over ¼ head of cabbage, shredded.
- Mix well and garnish with paprika if desired.
