The best cole slaw recipe - give it a try this week!

Hello everyone! Time for a quick recipe. Who here loves cole slaw? Here’s a recipe for a quick, easy coleslaw that I came up with years ago, it is tried and true and it’s probably our family’s favorite side dish. My boys will never turn their nose up at this cole slaw. πŸ™‚


Quick and Easy Coleslaw Recipe

The great thing about this coleslaw. . . The dressing has many applications. Aside from the cole slaw, it can be used for:

  • A homemade salad dressing
  • Toss it with cubed cucumbers for a phenomenal cucumber salad
  • Pasta salad

One time I added about 1/4 avocado to the base dressing and made a delicious avocado salad dressing. Let your mind roam; be daring with it! I’ve never tried it, but I bet it would be delicious added to mashed potatoes, egg salad, you name it. This recipe calls for shredded cabbage. I sometimes use my stand mixer attachment to do this, but slicing the cabbage by hand works well too!

Note: we can’t have eggs, so we have to substitute egg-free mayonnaise for the mayo. I haven’t found a homemade egg-free recipe for mayo yet. If you have one, please let me know!

  • Yield: 8 servings 1x


A quick, easy coleslaw recipe the whole family will enjoy.


Units Scale
  • 1 medium head of cabbage, shredded
  • 1/3 cup olive oil
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 1/3 cup onion, or 1 tablespoon granulated onion
  • 1 garlic clove, or 1 teaspoon garlic powder, increase if you love garlic
  • 3 tablespoons raw honey, or other preferred sweetener
  • 1/2 t dried dill
  • 3/4 teaspoon sea salt – if you really prefer sweet cole slaw, then omit this. However, I encourage you to try it salty. We love it.
  • 1 teaspoon pepper


  1. Add all ingredients except cabbage to blender. Or, if you prefer, you can whisk the ingredients together in a large bowl before tossing with cabbage.
  2. Process until blended.
  3. Toss with cabbage.
  4. If you have time, you can refrigerate before serving to let the flavors meld, but this is not necessary.


When I’m out of honey, I love adding my homemade powdered sugar because it blends very easily, without staying grainy like granulated sugars.

  1. Thank you for sharing this wonderful recipe. I’ve made it twice already, using parsley because I didn’t have dill. It came out great! I am currently making it as a side dish for Thanksgiving tomorrow. πŸ™‚

  2. I tried this tonight and added some Apple while I was the cabbage and it came out so delicious. Thanks for the recipe!

  3. My grandmother's slaw is almost identical – except she always put in celery seeds. I loved it as a kid. It's kind of hard to find celery seed in the supermarket's seasoning section anymore. When I do see it, I buy it.

  4. It’s awesome to go to see this web page and reading the views of all mates on the topic
    of this post, while I am also eager of getting knowledge.

  5. This is delicious and is the easiest coleslaw dressing. I will go a little lighter on the honey and use a touch more dill next time.
