Cole Slaw

We eat cole slaw often in the Miller household.  It's a quick and easy side dish that goes well with just about anything.  I often buy a big bag of prepared cole slaw at Sam's Club and keep a Mason jar filled with the dressing in the refrigerator.  Cole slaw is quick to put together when you have the ingredients ready!  Enjoy~

Cole Slaw Dressing

2 cups mayo (I use Hellman's)
1/3 c. sugar
1/4 c. tarragon vinegar
1 T. onion powder
1/8 t. celery seed

Whisk the mayo, sugar and vinegar together until smooth.  Add the onion powder and celery seed.  Mix well.  Pour into a clean Mason jar and refrigerate until needed. 

To make cole slaw:  Shred 1/2 of a cabbage and 2 peeled carrots in a food processor.  (You can also hand shred the cabbage and carrot if you don't have a food processor.)  Place shredded cabbage/carrot into a large bowl. Add enough cole slaw dressing to your liking.  Stir well. 

You can also use prepackaged cole slaw mix.  (This saves a lot of time!)  If you shred your own cabbage/carrots, you will use less dressing...the fresh cabbage is more moist and takes less dressing!
