I've been trying to make my own coleslaw for awhile now. Trying other recipes and seeing what I liked about them and then making something that works for me. Now I'm particular about my coleslaw. First.. there better never be onions in it, on it, around it! UGH! Not even green onions.. no no no!! Second, it needs to be cold and creamy! Third.. not too sweet...not too tart...definitely not bitter. Basically, I love KFC coleslaw and most others pretty much suck! Now, I have a copycat recipe for KFC's coleslaw, but I wanted to create something a bit more simple and of course, something that I could say was my creation, not a copycat. Ok, ok.. it's probably a copycat of someones, because it's real simple and pretty much uses the same ingredients most coleslaw recipes call for. But I think you get what I'm say, so I will stop talking....er, I mean typing...and get on with the recipe!
1/4 cup mayonnaise
1 teaspoon sugar
1 Tablespoon white wine vinegar
dash to 1/8 teaspoon celery seed
1/2 teaspoon Dijon mustard
salt and pepper to taste
8 oz coleslaw mix (half a bag) or 8oz of shredded cabbage and carrots
In a medium size bowl, mix together all the ingredients except the coleslaw mix. Once combined, add the slaw mix and toss to coat. Cover and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.
