Lite Coleslaw Dressing


I learned, years ago from Mom, that the inclusion of celery seed is a requisite for classic coleslaw.  That’s what sets this slaw apart from the rest. Celery seed adds an extra touch and tastes like concentrated celery ~ earthy and slightly bitter.   


My dressing has a tasty blend of sweet and tart to complement the slaw.  I use light mayonnaise to lighten the calorie count and fat content. Be sure to store it in a glass jar, not plastic.

Some people like slaw dripping in dressing; I like not so much, just a light coating.  The important thing is to mix it into the slaw well, and refrigerate it an hour or two before serving.

I hope you like it too, and don’t forget the celery seed!



Lite Coleslaw Dressing

Ingredients:

1 cup light or fat-free mayonnaise
2 tablespoons cider vinegar
2 tablespoons Splenda
½ teaspoon dry mustard
1 teaspoon celery seed
Salt and pepper, to taste

Method:

Place all in a bowl and whip with a whisk until mixed well.
Chill well.
Add desired amount to slaw.


ENJOY!

  2. For years, I tried to duplicate my mother's cole slaw and potato salad. She gave me the recipes a number of times but they just weren't the same. I decided to watch her make potato salad one day. At the end, she tossed in a palm full of celery seed. "You never told me about the celery seed" I said. "Oh, I thought everyone knew potato salad and cole slaw had to have celery seed", said mom!! Now I know! Your's sounds delicious with the added bonus of being light.

    Best,
    Bonnie

  3. This sounds brilliant but not sure we can get celery seed here! Celery salt yes, but I use almost no salt in cooking! Will have to look around. Keep well you two Diane

  6. Thanks to all of you...

    Dave, it's all in the celery seeds. lol!

    Bonnie, I've had talks like that with mom. :-)

    jose, Es bien!

    Gloria, glad you stopped by!

    Diane, celery salt doesn't do it---not the same as celery seeds.

    Nana, you'd never know it's not sugar!

  7. Cabbage will be coming into season here soon and then is when I make a lot of cole slaw.

    I agree with you celery seed is critical. I don't like slaw dripping in dressing either. a light coat is indeed just fine.

  9. I agree with your mom, celery seed is definitely what defines the basic coleslaw dressing. Yours sounds very similar to what I make... mmmmmmm.. now I'm craving coleslaw!!!

  10. Great slaw Pam. Nice to see someone else uses seeds in their slaw. I alteernate between caraway seeds & celery seeds and they really make a nice flavor boost.

  13. Pam,
    My Mom always put celery seed in cole slaw and potato salad, too. Now, I do the same. the celery seed does make a difference in the taste.

  14. I just have to be careful not to use too much celery seed because I love the stuff.

  15. I agree with you, the celery seed is the key to a good slaw dressing. I'm going to use your recipe and cut back on some of the calories in my recipe. Thanks for sharing this, Pam.
