It would need to be a very badly tasting coleslaw for me not to like it – seriously, I love coleslaw.  And, everyone makes it differently, which is why I never grow tired of reading coleslaw recipes!  For me, and I’m sure it’s this way for most people, the taste we all prefer is that of our mom’s recipe.

Now, before I get too ahead of myself, I need to say one thing – apples and raisins do not belong in a coleslaw!!  I’m not sure where we went wrong, or who’s responsible for the defamation of coleslaw, but we need to take hold of the reigns and turn this coleslaw fancying pandemic around!  No more additives!  I’ve even seen coleslaw with pineapple in it – the nerve!

I’ve only ever tried two types of coleslaw – the oil-based, vinegary coleslaw, and the sweeter taste of a creamy coleslaw.  I prefer the latter.  It’s probably because we tend to like dishes the way they were prepared in our mother’s kitchens.  My mom’s coleslaw was always the same – cabbage, carrot, and a creamy dressing.  And, that, Dear Reader, is what I’m going to give you today – Home Style Creamy Coleslaw.

Shredded, grated, or chopped?

Now, some people prefer to shred or grate the cabbage, but I prefer the cabbage to be chopped.  I find that the coleslaw maintains a crunchiness rather than becoming soft and soupy.  And, because coleslaw is all about ease, I’m using two bags of Dole coleslaw mix.  It’s pre-chopped green cabbage, red or purple cabbage, and bright orange shredded carrots.

If you prefer to use fresh ingredients, you most certainly can!  Substitute the two bags of pre-chopped veggies for 8 cups chopped green cabbage, 1 cup shredded carrots, and 1 cup chopped red or purple cabbage.  Keep the dressing the same as in the recipe provided and you’re all set!

  1. This is so close to my recipe, I use 1/3 of the sugar, no milk and a little more (apple cider) vinegar along with some celery seed and dry mustard. I too am a lover of cole slaw and don't take kindly to the other fruits and veggies hitchin a ride!
  2. Would you like to add a twist to this? Add some mango puree to the mayo to taste. Add a generous amount of chopped Thai basil. And, a hint of Tabasco. Learnt that at a cooking class. To die for. Great with chicken.
