More Summertime Hits: Coleslaw

Hi! My name is Alishia and I am a KraftaholicMommy!

With the heat beginning to settle into Florida, I have been cooking up a lot of summer time deliciousness. One of the staples in our house for a delicious and super easy dish is Coleslaw. Over the years, I have altered and played around with different recipes and I have finally got one down that everyone loves. This coleslaw recipe is super easy and super quick! My mom loves that I make this recipe when we grill hamburgers and hotdogs, because she loves coleslaw on her hotdog. This recipe is great on a hotdog and as a side.

So, without further delay, let’s get cooking!


Purple Cabbage

Green Cabbage

Small onion, minced

Carrots, shredded finely

Apple Cider Vinegar




How To

I start my cutting the heart out of each of my heads of cabbage. I do want to preface this part in saying that when I make coleslaw, I always make it either two days before or the night before. I never make this dish the day of. I find that coleslaw tastes so much better after a nice long sit in the fridge. I also have noticed that depending on how large a crowd I am making this for, I probably wont use all of both heads of cabbage for this recipe. A little goes a very long way in this recipe. So, typically for a decent size crowd of thirty to forty, I will only use about a third of each head. The leftovers, are used for a dinner dish…come back tomorrow for that recipe.

Once I have cut the hearts out of the cabbage, I begin shredding my cabbage. Now, depending on what the coleslaw is being used for, will determine how finely I shred this. If it is for a grill out of hotdogs, I will shred it finely. If it is just going to be for a side, I will shred it a bit less fine. If I am really pressed for time, rather than chopping this into a fine shred, I will use a cheese grater to shred my cabbage.

From there, I wash my cabbage. I place it in a colander and thoroughly rinse my cabbage. For quick drying tip, I will take a clean dish towel and lay my cabbage on it. From there, I roll my towel around the cabbage and squeeze tightly to remove the excess water. At this point, I add the cabbage to the largest bowl I have.

At this point, I will finely shred my carrots and add them to the cabbage.

Now, I mince my onion and add that to the bowl. I do this along with adding my mayo, apple cider vinegar, sugar, salt, and pepper.

Now comes the fun part. In my experience of making coleslaw, it’ll mix just fine with using a spatula or spoon. However, everything gets far more incorporated if you put some freshly washed hands in there and mix like your life depends on it. Sometimes in cooking you have to get dirty to have a fantastic turn out.

Once everything has been mixed thoroughly, it’s time to cover that bad boy and put it in the fridge to get cold and delicious!

I hope you make this awesome dish! If you do, be sure to let me know what you think. I would like to also suggest adding raisins to the coleslaw if it is just a side. While it may not sound all that yummy, I can assure it is definitely worth trying!
