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!
