Sweet Cole Slaw

When summer hits, we BBQ at least every weekend. We love to invite friends over, but even if we don’t have company, we still go all out as if we were having a get-together with side dishes & grilled corn on the cob. I love salads. Pasta, potato, macaroni. So of course I love cole slaw as well. It is so cheap & easy to make. My cole slaw hating husband even said he loved this cole slaw. So creamy, sweet, & crunchy!

Ingredients

  • 1/2 head cabbage, thinly shredded (can even do part green part purple)
  • 1-2 small carrots, shredded (like shredded cheese)
  • 1/2 small onion, chopped small (red will make the color pop, but I had white on hand)
  • 1 cup light mayonnaise, this is really creamy; to make it lighter start at 1/2 cup & go from there until desired texture
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 2 Tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tsp celery seed or celery salt (I use celery salt & then just add pepper to taste)
  • Salt & Pepper to taste
  • *Optional: 1 cup raisins or dried cranberries for extra color/sweetness

Instructions

  1. Combine first 3 ingredients in a bowl.
  2. In a separate bowl, combine the last 5 ingredients to make the dressing.
  3. Toss dressing in slaw & let marinate in fridge for at least 30min-1 hour before serving. Enjoy!
