Basic coleslaw dressing recipeColeslaw is one of my 2 year-old daughter’s favorite foods… along with fried okra and hushpuppies. Can you tell she’s growing up in the South?I used to really dislike coleslaw, though I have come around and find that I really do enjoy it, provided that it is NOT too creamy or too sweet.


When I make coleslaw dressing at home, I usually just eyeball the amounts and shake it up in a mason jar. But I figured it would be helpful (to me and hopefully others) to actually measure and write down my recipe for a coleslaw dressing that is just right – if you like your slaw like me, that is – not too creamy or sweet. 🙂 Don’t buy dressing when it is so easy to make!

Basic Coleslaw Dressing

Enough dressing for roughly 1 lb. of coleslaw


1/2 cup Mayonnaise
3 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
1/4 cup white sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1/2 teaspoon celery seed


Put all ingredients into a glass jar, put on the lid and shake. Add to coleslaw and let sit for at least 1 hour before serving.
