Creamy Cole Slaw

One of my favorite things about summer is eating summer foods.  I mean foods like watermelon, barbecue, hot dogs, burgers, potato salad and cole slaw!  The problem with cole slaw is that there are so many different kinds.  I like the creamy tangy kind. I don't like cole slaw with onion in it.  It just seems wrong.  Also, my cole slaw  has to have some color in it which is why I added some shredded carrots and some red cabbage to this slaw recipe when I made it a few weeks ago.  There is just something about this dressing that makes the slaw almost, if not actually, PERFECT!!

Go ahead and try this recipe.  It is easy and so much better than the slaw you get at the grocery store.


·         3/4 cup mayonnaise
·         3 tablespoons sugar
·         1 1/2 tablespoons white wine vinegar
·         1/3 cup oil
·         1/8 teaspoon onion powder
·         1/8 teaspoon dry mustard
·         1/8 teaspoon celery salt
·         1 dash black pepper
·         1 tablespoon lemon juice
·         1/2 cup half-and-half
·         1/4 teaspoon salt
·         1 large head cabbage, finely shredded
Blend mayonnaise, sugar, vinegar and oil. Add onion powder, dry mustard, celery salt, pepper, lemon juice, half-and-half and salt. Stir until smooth. Pour coleslaw dressing over shredded cabbage in a large bowl and toss until cabbage is well coated. Keep coleslaw refrigerated. Coleslaw
 serves 8.
