Light and Tangy Coleslaw

Light and Tangy Cole Slaw

I found this coleslaw recipe on Epicurious that looked and sounded fantastic.  I adapted it a bit to work with what ingredients I had on hand and it turned out really delicious.  I loved the sweet and tangy sauce on the crunchy cabbage and carrots.  It was wonderful plain and when served on sandwiches.  It’s quick, simple and so tasty!  This will be my new “go-to” slaw recipe.

How to Make a Light and Tangy Coleslaw

Toss the cabbage, carrots, purple cabbage, parsley, and green onions together in a bowl.

In a smaller bowl, combine the vinegar, lemon juice, mayonnaise, sour cream, Dijon, sugar, honey, celery salt, sea salt, and freshly cracked pepper, to taste.  Whisk until well combined.  Pour the dressing over the salad and toss until evenly coated.

  1. YUM! This cole slaw looks delicious, Pam! I love the addition of the celery salt (most recipes use celery seeds).

  2. It’s hard to find a good creamy cole slaw recipe that still has that tangy element. My favourite application for cole slaw is to pile it on top of pulled pork on a crusty bun.

  3. I just wanted you to know that my sil turned me on to your blog & I so enjoy it! THANK YOU for such an outstanding collection of recipes. I personally am not a cole slaw girl, but may turn into one as your recipes always deliver excellence! “LOVE IT”

  4. Oh yes, I can absolutely “feel” this lovely coleslaw on those Barbecue Chicken Sandwiches, Pam. I’ll be saving this one too!!!

    Thanks for sharing…

  5. I just found this recipe, tried it and I love it. My kids ate the cole slaw mainly because the dressing had brown sugar, but hey, I will take it!
