    My receipe is not a mayo dressing. You slice, shred or how-ever you make your slaw, the difference is the dressing.
    Dressing
    l cup of oil, 1 cup of water, 1 cup of cider vinegar, 1 cup of sugar, 1 tspn of celery seed. Salt & pepper.
    Put in pot and boil for 5 minutes. Drizzle over slaw mixture.

    This is great. It has lasted up to 1month in my fridge.
    IMPORTANT--only use cider vinegar.
    ENJOY. :thumbup:

    I do a similar dressing for slaw. I use only about 1/2 cup oil, and no water, also add a 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon of dry mustard.
    I use white or cider vineger, both work well.
    Try adding chopped onion, the leafie top of celery, and
    green bell pepper.

    I know that there are many ingrediants you can put in cole slaw,so to simplify things, I thought that if I wrote to do the cole slaw you like it would work. Besides the onion I also like to put in carrots, red & green peppers. Makes it colorful. Anne
    Oh, the celery seeds give it that celery taste.

    My sister-in-law used to put pineapple in her coleslaw and it was yummy, don't know if it would work in with this type of dressing.I always put shredded apple in mine. It was nice that way too.

    I always make sure that the vinegar I use in food is fermented from apples (can be from corn, check if allergic to corn) and not from petroleum. I get cheap white vinegar for cleaning, I think that it is a reasonable alternative to even stronger petroleum products. And it's very cheap too.

    Lots in my family have some severe allergies, so we are used to checking for those allergens in processed foods, and even then they might no be on the label.

    Anne T - thank you for the recipe - it sounds very similar to a recipe I found in an old World War cookbook that I inherited from my mother (deceased). I remember it was so good except I do think it had dry mustard in it - you can do so much with that stuff. Anyway, thank you, it is that season again!

    I only use regular Kraft Mayonnise, not the low fat one.
    Finelly chop, grate or shred cabbage then stir in enough mayo to just stick to cabbage. You an grate carrot, chop bell pepper or even chop a little celery, whatever your family likes.
    I don't add salt to slaw, it get droopy.

    We haven't used any other mayonnaise based recipe since finding this one about 15 years ago. It says it is KFC Original Recipe. It does taste a lot like what we have gotten there. The website is here: http://www.askyourneighbor.com/recipes/376.htm
    My kids just asked me to make it last week for a family BBQ.

    Hi, I use Light Miricle Whip, add salt & pepper, a little lemon juice and sugar to taste. I substitute Splenda on both because my husband is now a diabetic. Also if you are making only a small amount of cole slaw decrease the amount accordingly. :-D Anne

    The recipe posted by ncredbird does sound good, but I wouldn't have a use for the rest of the buttermilk I'd have to buy, so I've used this one for years:

    1/2 cup real mayonnaise
    2-4 Tablespoons sugar, (start with smallest amount, adjust to your taste)
    1 1/2 teas. vinegar
    milk to thin a little, if desired.

    Combine all until sugar is dissolve. Thin with a little milk, if necessary, but keep in mind that the cabbage will exude a little water, so adding milk may not be needed. After mixing, let it set about 1/2 hour, then use your judgment.

    I would use this for 1 small head cabbage, finely shredded.

    The slaw recipe with sugar/apple cider vinegar was one of my grandmother's recipes she gave me. I think they used it way back when because of lack of refrigeration. It didn't spoil quickly. With the sweet/sour taste, it's very good and it was named Everlasting Slaw, would keep a long time without the cabbage going bad.

    When I make 'mayo' type of slaw, I use Marzetti's Slaw Dressing from the salad dressing shelf at the grocery. Also use it for my macaroni salad. It's wonderful and no measuring ingredients. Do not use the Lite, it's awful!
