This coleslaw dressing is creamy, tangy and a little bit sweet. It’s easy to make with ingredients you likely already have on hand.

A typical coleslaw recipe is one of those side dishes that go with anything, from burgers and hot dogs to chicken, ribs, chops, and steaks.

What’s in Coleslaw Dressing?

The best coleslaw dressing is creamy and tangy and a touch sweet, more so than a regular salad dressings.

These flavors make it especially good to serve with heavily seasoned foods and anything made with ketchup, barbecue sauce, or mustard.

  • VINEGAR – I love a combination of white vinegar and apple cider vinegar but truly any light colored vinegar will do.
  • MAYO This is the base and makes it creamy. Some of the mayo can be replaced with sour cream or plain yogurt to lighten it up.
  • CABBAGE –  Green or purple cabbage are traditional but serve this over any kind of shredded veggie for a great side.

Celery Seed is a spice you may not have on hand but it truly adds great flavor and shouldn’t be skipped in this recipe. If you just need a little bit check the bulk aisle of your grocery store.

Storage

Coleslaw dressing will keep in a mason jar in the refrigerator for about 2 weeks so feel free to double (or triple) the recipe. Before using it again, give it a shake or stir.
