  2. Then store it in the refrigerator until you need it, up to a week in advance.

Recipe tips:

  • Yield: This recipe makes about 1 1/2 cups of dressing which generously dresses 1 pound of coleslaw mix. You end up with 6 cups of coleslaw.
  • Storage: Properly stored in the refrigerator, the dressing should last up to a week in the refrigerator.
  • Sitting out at room temperature: Bacteria has a much better chance of growing in warm temperatures, so throw out any mayo-based coleslaw dressing if left out for more than 2 hours at room temperature.

Variations and substitutions:

  • Caraway seed. Feel free to use an equal amount of caraway seed for the celery seed in the dressing.
  • Lemon juice. You can replace freshly squeezed lemon juice for any or even all of the vinegar in the recipe.
  • Low sugar dressing. Mix in a small amount of honey, maple syrup, or artificial sweetener in place of the sugar in the recipe. If it’s sweet enough for you, then it’s sweet enough.
  • Use it for anything. Not just for cabbage! Any sturdy, cruciferous type of veg can stand up to this lovely tangy dressing. Try it with kale, broccoli, etc.
  • Add some crunch. Sesame seeds, scallions, sunflower seeds sprinkled on top of any slaw make it pretty and give it some texture, too.

    This is delicious and closely resembles a popular commercial brand. That brand is sweeter which makes this recipe nice because you can make it either more sweet or sour depending on your preferences.5 stars
