Classic Coleslaw

Classic coleslaw

First of all, please excuse the horrible picture – forgot to take one before digging in! And I also have very bad lighting so hence the angle! This is a great classic coleslaw recipe. I think a little bit of onion is traditional to coleslaw, but it is omitted to prevent the aftertaste 🙂

Serves 4


  • 1/2 cabbage, finely shredded (green, red, or a mix)
  • 1 large carrot, finely shredded
  • 3/8 cup mayonnaise (half of 3/4)
  • 1 tbsp sugar
  • 1 tbsp white vinegar
  • 1/2 tbsp grainy mustard
  • Salt and pepper


  • Mix everything up and you’re good to go!
