Basic Cole Slaw

C loves Cole slaw so I try to add it to a meal at least once a week.  I usually take the easy route, like this recipe, and buy the shredded mix and make the dressing.  Soon, I hope to make it completely from scratch and add my own touch to the vegetable mix and dressing, but for now, I will stick with the quick and easy way!

1 package Cole slaw mix (This one has green cabbage, red cabbage, and carrots.)

1/2 cup mayonnaise (I use light.)

2 tbsp apple cider vinegar

1/2 tsp sugar

2 tbsp milk

salt & pepper to taste


In a large bowl, combine the mayo, vinegar, sugar, and milk. 


Stir in the slaw mix.  Add the salt and pepper to taste.  Chill until ready to serve.



This makes a fairly dry slaw, so if you like yours wet, make a double batch of the dressing.

I am linking this recipe at Miz Helen’s Country Cottage’s Full Plate Thursday.
