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 and cheap to make! Just add everything to a Mason jar and shake.
- 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
- 2 tablespoons water
- Put all ingredients into a jar with a lid. Shake well.
- Add dressing to coleslaw. Allow to sit for at least 1 hour.
