Creamy Coleslaw

Creamy ColeslawSo I was told that there are 2 types of coleslaw. The type with a creamy dressing and the type with a vinaigrette dressing. I did not know that! I've always had the creamy one and it's the on that Hubby loves. Needless to say, I had to go make a creamy one for Hubby. If he loves something that involves veggies, I try to make it lots so he actually gets SOME sort of veggies intake. Lol. Sometimes I think all wives do this to their Hubbies. :)

Creamy Coleslaw
(serves 6-8)

Ingredients:
  • 1 green cabbage, finely shredded
  • 2 medium carrots, grated
  • 1 bunch green onions, finely shredded or diced on a bias
  • 2/3 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1 Tbsp white vinegar
  • 3 Tbsp canola oil
  • Sat & pepper, to taste

Directions:
  1. In a large bowl, whisk together mayo, sugar, vinegar and oil until smooth. Season with salt and pepper to taste. 
  2. Add in shredded veggies. Mix until well coated. Chill in the fridge for at least 2 hours before serving.

You can always salt your cabbage to remove the water content in the cabbage. This'll help make the dressing less watery. We don't care though because we just strain the last bits. It's too much of a hassle to salt the cabbage and then rinse and dry the cabbage thoroughly before actually combining everything together.
