  • mixing bowl


  • 1 lb cabbage shredded or coleslaw mix
  • 4 ½ teaspoon sugar white
  • 4 ½ teaspoon vinegar white
  • ¼ cup mayonnaise
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon pepper


  • Shred the cabbage using a knife or mandolin. If you are using a bag of coleslaw mix, you can skip this step.
  • In a separate bowl mix the sugar, white vinegar, mayonnaise, salt and pepper to make the coleslaw dressing.
  • Pour the dressing over the shredded cabbage and mix.
  • Chill for 4-8 hours before serving.


  • Make the slaw in advance. This is a recipe that loves some time to sit before it is served. If you are planning a picnic, then make it the night before. If you have an afternoon bbq planned, make it first thing in the morning.
  • Use coleslaw as a sandwich topping. We love to top our deli meat sandwiches, BBQ Chicken, BBQ Beef, and burgers with this homemade coleslaw. It often takes the place of mayo or other dressings.
  • Add 1 teaspoon of celery seed if you are looking to add some "bite" to the slaw.
  • Spice it up by adding 1 teaspoon of crushed red pepper flakes.
