Cole Slaw Dressing


For years I have been trying to find the perfect cole slaw dressing. Finally I have found a recipe that fits the bill!
I found this recipe on sixsistersstuff. I decided to try it and viola! finally its that taste I was looking for. Most recipes taste mostly like Mayonaise or Miracle Whip. I wanted it to taste more sweet and tart instead of tasting like mayo.

This is perfect! Their recipe used fresh cabbage and carrots shredded. I had the bagged stuff and just added a little super thin sliced and chopped onion. Theirs did not include celery seed and I love celery seed in mine.

Either way this cole slaw dressing is perfect! Put on a sandwich, eat it all by itself…it doesn’t matter, its perfect.
