Traditional Coleslaw

Prep Time:

10 mins.


about 1 quart

This well balanced slaw is based on an old Southern family recipe. Feel free to add shredded carrots or purple cabbage, chopped green onions or red onion, or a handful of chopped herbs. Because cabbage has such a natural affinity for pork, it’s the perfect topping for barbecue sandwiches or the classic Slaw Dog.



  1. MIX mayonnaise, vinegar, celery seeds, sugar or sugar substitute, salt and pepper in the bottom of a large mixing bowl until well combined.
  2. ADD cabbage and toss until well coated. Taste and adjust seasoning if needed.
  3. COVER and refrigerate until serving. Keeps well up to four days.
