Creamy Coleslaw
Saved for later (35)

Makes: 8 servings

Coleslaw got its name from the Dutch koolsla_, simply meaning cabbage (kool_) salad (sla). It became a popular side dish in America after New York City deli owner Richard Hellmann created bottled mayonnaise, which he began marketing in 1912.


  1. 1In a large bowl, blend together the mayonnaise, sugar, vinegar, and oil. Add the onion, mustard, celery salt, pepper, lemon juice, half-and-half, carrots, and salt, stirring until smooth.
  2. 2Pour the dressing over the shredded cabbage in a large bowl and toss until the cabbage is well coated. Keep refrigerated until ready to serve.

Note: For a stronger vinegar flavor, reduce the mayonnaise to 2 tablespoons, increase the sugar to 1/4 cup, and increase the vinegar to 1/4 cup.
