  • 1 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 tablespoons white vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon cider vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon yellow mustard
  • 1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 tablespoon celery seed
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper


  • In a medium bowl, mix together mayo, sugar, white wine vinegar, cider vinegar, yellow mustard, garlic powder, onion powder, and celery seed. Season to taste with salt and pepper (I like 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper). Cover and chill until serving time.
  • To make coleslaw, toss with 1 pound coleslaw mix.


  1. 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.
  2. Storage: Properly stored in the refrigerator, the dressing should last up to a week in the refrigerator.
  3. 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.
