This simple coleslaw recipe is a summer classic. An easy recipe to serve all summer long. Crispy, crunchy, and perfectly flavored. Exactly what a coleslaw should be.



1/2 head of cabbage (or 1/4 green and 1/4 purple) for about 6 cups, shredded
4 medium carrots, julienned or shredded
2/3 cup light mayonnaise
2 tablespoons cider vinegar
2 teaspoons sugar
1/2 teaspoon celery seed
Coarse salt and freshly ground pepper


In a bowl toss together the cabbage and carrots. In a separate bowl combine the mayonnaise, cider vinegar, sugar, celery seed, and salt and pepper until well incorporated and creamy. Pour dressing over cabbage and carrots and toss lightly. Refrigerate until ready to serve and up to 1 day.


When my guys are making the coleslaw, I usually have on hand Marie’s Coleslaw Dressing. You can find it in the refrigerated section of the produce department at the market. You understand. Sometimes it works better when they’re making it.
