Made my cole slaw for a big dinner.

Everyone loved it so I thought I would put it up here. It's the same slaw I have been making for years. I don't measure, just work from the way it looks.
Very simple basic slaw recipe.

Shredded cabbage ( l like some carrots in there too.).
Miracle whip
Milk
sugar
celery salt.

Sprinkle the cabbage with sugar and let it set for bit. Spoon in enough miracle whip add a few splashes of milk(if you were to mix the milk with the miracle whip it would be a thick mixture but would flow).

Add celery salt to taste.
That's it... your done.

Basically it's sweetened Mayonaise(miracle whip) and celery salt...

Thanks! My DH loves it this way too. I add a tad of apple cider vinegar though and TONS of black pepper - like I'm sneezing while mixing it! (well, not IN it, of course )

I like pepper too, not everyone does so I leave that to the individual...

My favorite slaw is vinegar slaw. Vinegar, water, sugar, celery seeds... mix with the cabbage...

Sounds great, I also add vinegar. Lots of great cole slaws out there, I always like those with some vinegar.

Jeff - if you like hot things try adding some red pepper flakes to that vinegar combo you mentioned - really good! And that same combo is good as a pulled pork sauce or pulled chicken.

I hadn't thought of the red pepper..

For pulled pork BBQ we have a old favorite.. Turmeric Slaw!!! Mayo(miracle whip) a little sugar, a lot of turmeric, shredded cabbage. It should be pretty yellow when it's mixed. The turmeric really does something with the BBQ.
