This is one of my favorite cole slaw recipes, with a tangy sweet andt creamy dressing.

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Total Time: 15 minutes


  • 1 medium head green cabbage

  • 1 tablespoon minced onion
  • 1 to 1 1/4 cups mayonnaise, or to taste
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup vinegar
  • 1/4 teaspoon celery seed
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper, or to taste
  • salt, to taste


Shred cabbage into a large bowl; add shredded carrot and onion. Combine mayonnaise, sugar, vinegar, celery seed. Whisk or shake in a jar.
