Grandma’s Coleslaw Recipe
My father’s mother makes the best coleslaw. This is NOT KFC sweet style coleslaw. This is much more like a vinaigrette style slaw than a sticky sweet slaw. Perfect with Pulled Pork, Crab, Hamburgers, Hot dogs… ok, you get the idea. Delish!
- 1 teaspoon Salt
- 1 teaspoon Ground Black Pepper
- 1/2 Green Bell Pepper (diced or sliced thin)
- 1 1/2 cup Mayonnaise
- 1 cup Vinegar
- 1 tablespoon Sugar
- 1 Onion (diced or sliced thin)
- 1 Head of Cabbage (Shredded)
- 1 Carrots (Shredded)
Original Recipe: Grandma's original recipe called for 1 cup vinegar to 1 cup of mayonnaise. That was too strong in vinegar, so I adjusted it.
Do not use Miracle Whip (too sweet) or any of the light mayonnaises (too watery). This is a "dump" recipe so you may have to adjust some of the ingredients, depending on the size of the head of cabbage.
Mix the vinegar, mayonnaise, sugar, salt and pepper in a large mixing bowl.
Add all of the remaining ingredients and thoroughly toss until all of the vegetables are evenly coated.
| Refrigerate for at least two hours and toss before serving. |
