This nicely seasoned basic coleslaw is made with a tangy mayonnaise dressing. Serve this delightful coleslaw with pulled pork or summer meals, or take it along to a potluck.

  • 2/3 cup mayonnaise
  • 2 tablespoons vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 2 1/2 tablespoons sugar, or to taste
  • 1/2 teaspoon celery salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt, or to taste


Toss cabbage in a large bowl with the carrots. In a bowl, whisk together the remaining ingredients. Pour the mixture over the cabbage and carrots and toss to coat thoroughly. Refrigerate until serving time.

Basic Coleslaw = Super Easy, Member jdancer79

Easy to make. I used fat free miracle whip & added about 1/4 tsp pepper to the dressing. I like that it is full of ingredients I have readily available all the time. I ""taste tested"" it...will see how the family likes it :)
