This zesty salad is made of shredded cabbage, carrots and mayonnaise or buttermilk. (Other vegetables like radishes, onions, and peppers are often included as well). This dish makes for a great side, snack, or sandwich/burger topping! Original retro coleslaw recipes call for the the white “salad dressing” Miracle Whip instead of mayo, even though it’s sweeter. My version has less dressing and bit of spice to it, keeping all the flavor!

– 1 head green cabbage, finely shredded

– 2 large carrots, finely shredded


– 1 package pre-shredded cabbage/carrot coleslaw starter

– 3/4 cup mayonnaise

– 2 tsbp sour cream

– 2 tbsp grated onion or shallot

– 2 tsp white vinegar

– 1 tbsp dry mustard

– 1 tsp celery salt

– 1/2 tsp chili powder

– Salt and pepper

Combine all ingredients, tasting along the way. Adjust spices according to your taste.
