Cast your vote for Pretty Good Cole Slaw Dressing

Sweet and Creamy

Cole slaw is a nice addition to all sorts of meals. It goes great with fish, chicken, barbecue and all sorts of great Southern and Southwestern dishes. This is a really quick Cole Slaw dressing that reminds me of Kraft Cole Slaw dressing. It tastes sweet instead of like some heavy smoker poured half a pound of pepper in it so he could actually taste something with those dead taste buds. It has a delicate, sweet flavor I really like and takes less than two minutes to make if you have the ingredients. It's a combination of A Southern Recipe and one Martha Stewart published. Mostly I took out the mustard and pepper. Like I said, it's got a more delicate flavor that we really like at our house.

Stirred up in a bowl.

Looks about like this once it's stirred up. Some folk add parsley, but I find the celery seed gives it a better flavor - not as sharp.

  • 1 3/4 cup Mayonnaise
  • 1/3 cup Sugar
  • 2 tablespoons Cider Vinegar
  • 1/4 teaspoon Celery Seed
  • 1/2 teaspoon Season salt or Creole Seasoning
  • 1 tablespoon Lemon juice
  • Salt To Taste
  • Milk - Enough to give it a creamy consistency

Just whisk it up

  1. Place all ingredients in a mixing bowl
  2. Whisk with a wire whiisk till well blended
  3. If you aren't using it immediately, store the dressing in the refrigerator. When you're ready to use it, simply mix it up in a bag of cole slaw mix or a bowl of shredded cabbage and carrots. I like to add purple cabbage for color. You can add whatever you like in the way of slaw ingredients. The dressing gives it a sweet and creamy taste we really like. Enjoy!

      I like the season salt version best, but if you want a little more "kick" I like Tony's Creole Seasoning for that sort of thing. This recipe is the product of experimentation, so I'm betting yogurt cream will work just fine. Let me know how it works out.

      My wife taught me about celery seed. It's great for all kinds of pasta salads, potato salad or cole slaw. Gives everything a wonderful flavor. We always keep a little bottle of celery seed around. It's one of our essential spices.

      I haven't tried celery and Creole seasoning in coleslaw. I'll try your recipe, sounds creamy-licious :=).... I'll also try substituting mayo with yogurt cream. Maybe it's time to also go Cajun-style. Thank you for the recipe twayneking.
