Perfect Coleslaw


I finally found the perfect coleslaw. I could barely read the ingredients on the torn and faded pages of the old book I found it in, but it’s perfect. And I’m happy.

A little sweet, a little tangy, and just a teeny bit creamy.

Plain and simple.

First, we’re going to get us a bag of coleslaw mix.

Then we’re going to throw out that gross little pouch of “sweet and creamy” dressing.

I buy this bag because the only coleslaw bag without dressing is a 48 oz. party size.

I don’t need no “party size” of nuttin’!

I don’t know about you, but there is nothing that grosses me out more than gross coleslaw.
I always hated coleslaw ’till I found this recipe.
It was always soggy, sickly sweet, bleck.

But this coleslaw – this coleslaw tastes like…. veggies. So… fresh!

Easy, peasy.

Mix 4 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar.

Add in a teaspoon of sugar, one tablespoon of mayonnaise, and a tablespoon of dijon mustard.

Stir that around with a fork.

Then add in  a pinch of poppy seeds, and celery salt.

Be careful with celery salt, it’s powerful.

Look at that.

Gorgeous, darling.

Give it a toss, and serve it up!

And you’re done!
Could it have been any easier? I don’t think so!

This is definitely one of my go to quick fix sides, and it’s light and refreshing.


~Peace, Love, and Slaw ya’ll
