Creamy Southern Coleslaw is full of tasty goodness, with the perfect blend of sweet and sour. It’s consistently amazing, and goes well with so many dishes. What’s even better is that the food processor does most of the work.
Ingredients for Creamy Southern Coleslaw:
I used the following vegetables: Green cabbage, celery, carrots, and onions. For the sauce, I used mayonnaise, sugar, apple cider vinegar, dry mustard, salt, and freshly ground black pepper.
Making the Coleslaw:
First, I made the sauce by whisking together the mayonnaise, sugar, vinegar, dry mustard, salt, and pepper. I usually do this in a measuring cup to make pouring the sauce a bit easier.
Next, I shredded the cabbage, celery, carrots, and onions in my food processor and added them to a large bowl.
Then, I poured the sauce over the shredded vegetables and mixed everything well with a wooden spoon.
When the vegetables were well coated with the sauce, I covered and refrigerated the coleslaw. After a couple of hours in the refrigerator, the Creamy Southern Coleslaw was absolutely delicious. Yum!
