Using the convenience of bagged pre-shredded cabbage/carrot mix, these ingredients can be combined in 5 minutes. Serve it with sandwiches, burgers, barbecue, and fried chicken or fish.

Ingredients
  • 1 (14 oz) package coleslaw mix (pre-shredded cabbage and carrots); 6 cups
  • FOR DRESSING:
  • 3/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard (may substitute other mustard)
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons sugar
  • 1 tablespoon cider vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon celery seeds
  • 1/2 teaspoon celery salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

Directions
In medium bowl, whisk together dressing ingredients. Add coleslaw mix and stir until well mixed. Cover and refrigerate for up to 3 days.

Restaurants with fried chicken or fish on the menu most often serve coleslaw as the preferred side. It's also a natural to pair with barbecue, sandwiches, and burgers. A cold, creamy, crunchy slaw provides the perfect contrast and complement to those foods and more. 

This tasty, versatile side turns out to be quick and easy to make. You can make this classic slaw in just 5 minutes using the convenience of bagged pre-shredded cabbage/carrot mix. Unlike dressed lettuce salads, cabbage slaw doesn't wilt. You can make it ahead and chill it in the fridge for up to 3 days. Creamy coleslaw is great to take along to potlucks and picnics.

  • celery salt
  • celery seed

Done. It's hard to make a quicker, easier salad. It's cold, crunchy, creamy, and so yummy.

Chill it. Cover the slaw and refrigerate it for up to 3 days. Serve it cold.

Serve it with barbecue. Where I'm from, coleslaw is a must with barbecue ribs and pulled pork barbecue sandwiches. Here are my recipes for those:
