Hi there, friends! I hope your week is off to a great start!
Memorial Weekend is quickly approaching and I thought I would share this quick and VERY easy recipe for creamy coleslaw. In addition to the benefits of speed and ease of this recipe, it is “dirt cheap” compared with what you would spend on an already prepared slaw or purchasing the bottled slaw dressing. However, I do cheat with the cabbage and carrot mixture by purchasing the already shredded slaw mix. It is a minimal expense and well worth it! 🙂
I am willing to bet the bank that you already have the ingredients for the dressing in your fridge and pantry. The only exception may be celery seed, but it is very easily found in the spice section of your supermarket. If you do not already have it, please do not hesitate to purchase some, as it goes well in all kinds of prepared salads, such as tuna, chicken, and pasta salads.
Just keep in mind to keep this slaw cool because of the mayonnaise base. If you would like a slaw that can sit out for longer periods of time, you may want to check out my Jalapeno Pepper Slaw that I posted a couple of months ago. 🙂
Here’s how I made it…
- 1 cup mayonnaise
- 1/2 cup vinegar
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon celery seed
- salt and pepper to taste
- 1 package of prepared coleslaw mix (cabbage with carrots)
- Whisk together all ingredients except coleslaw mix.
- Stir the dressing into the coleslaw mix and mix well.
- Cover and refrigerate for several hours before serving.
