My mother makes great coleslaw, always off the top of her head. Mr.Picky like with most things is picky about his coleslaw. He always wants store-bought dressing, which I refuse to buy. I set out to try a recipe I thought would fit into his bottled dressing. I think I found it, and even our daughter decided she now loves coleslaw.
Thanks to Sweet Restaurant Slaw on Allrecipes, this is the recipe I made.
- 16 oz. cabbage mix or half a large head of cabbage shredded
- 2 Tbs onions, diced finely
- 2/3 cup mayonnaise
- 3 Tbs olive oil
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1 Tbs vinegar
- 1/4 tsp salt
Combine all dressing ingredients and whisk until well combined. Toss dressing, cabbage, and onion together until well coated.
Allow to chill for at least 2 hours, this is very important.
