  • 1 (14 ounce) bag coleslaw mix (shredded cabbage and carrots) (or shred your own cabbage and carrots for a total of about 6.5 cups)
  • ¾ cup mayonnaise (I use Duke's, but any similar variety will work)
  • 2 tablespoons sour cream
  • 2 tablespoons grated onion
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 tablespoons white vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon dry mustard
  • 2 teaspoons celery salt (or substitute with 1 teaspoon of salt)
  • Fresh dill, to taste (I use about 1 - 2 tablespoons)
  • A little squeeze of lemon juice (about 1 tablespoon)
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  1. Place coleslaw mix in a large bowl.
  2. In a separate bowl, whisk together remaining ingredients. Pour dressing over coleslaw mix and toss to coat. Cover and refrigerate until ready to serve.

Recipe Notes

When the cabbage absorbs the dressing, it wilts slightly and shrinks in volume. After chilling for at least 1 hour, the total amount of coleslaw yielded from this recipe is approximately 3 cups (or 6 1/2-cup servings).
