Easy Coleslaw Dressing


It doesn’t get much easier than this, nor taste much better!



We eat a lot of slaw in the summer with grilled meat, and this easy recipe for the dressing is my favorite.  I use olive oil mayonnaise and Splenda. 

Add the full amount of pepper; it may seem like a lot, but it’s not too “peppery.”  The spices are subtle, being perfect for slaw.  



Mmmm...  Maybe, the next time I make potato salad, I will toss it with this dressing!

  1. Pam, Looks like a great coleslaw dressing...with a bit of a bite...my favorite type. I hope that you've finally warmed up in Chicagoland. We just got back from the upper midwest this past week and it was chilly much of the time. Take Care, Big Daddy Dave

    1. Thanks, Dave! It does have a bit of a bite! The weather here is crazy!!!! We've gone from heat to a/c on the same day more than once the last couple of weeks. Right now it is 80 degrees and t-storms with hail on the way. It will probably snow tomorrow! :-)

  15. I like making the dressing up ahead of time like this when I'm cooking on site somewhere. That way I can mix it up just a few hours before serving instead of making it sit and get goopy for 12 or 18 hours by making it the night before. Great post, Pam.

  16. I love creamy slaw in the summer. It goes great with everything. Thanks for sharing - it looks delicious.

  17. You can never have too much black pepper in coleslaw. I think it's a law or something. ;-) This looks terrific -- and love the celery seed you've added. It works so well in slaw, don't you think? Thanks for this.
