Tangy and Sweet Coleslaw


Coleslaw is a great addition to a variety of meals. I love a good coleslaw that has an easy recipe and not overly creamy from mayonnaise. This is my go to recipe for coleslaw when I need and easy salad for a gathering or picnic. It is also a great recipe to go with barbecue. I cooked up this coleslaw to go with a some Kansas Pulled Pork Sandwich, a delicious combination!
Delicious Rating: Simple and delicious. With only five ingredients, this coleslaw is easy to make but packs a lot of flavor. The tangy comes from the vinegar and the sweet from the sugar. It is balanced and still creamy without being overloaded.

Tangy and Sweet Coleslaw
Recipe type: Side Dish
Prep time: 
Total time: 
Yields: 8 servings
Serve with a Kansas Pulled Pork Sandwich
  • 1 small to medium head of cabbage, shredded
  • 3 medium carrots, shredded
  • 1 cup mayonnaise
  • ⅓ cup sugar
  • ¼ cup cider vinegar
  1. Combine cabbage and carrots in a large bowl.
  2. In a separate bowl mix mayonnaise, sugar, and vinegar together.
  3. Pour dressing over cabbage and carrots and coat evenly.
  4. Chill for at least 1 hour and serve.

I ran the carrots through the food processor for easy ‘shredding’.

The dressing is delicious and once you chill the coleslaw it thickens more. I added some salt and pepper to taste once combined.
