Classic Coleslaw

Sometimes I feel like the classics can get a bit too complicated. While there is certainly a time and place for more fancy versions of the classics, sometimes you just want the good ol’ original version. 

Take this coleslaw, for example. It’s the kind of coleslaw you would’ve gotten at your granny’s house at a family cookout. There’s nothing fussy about it. In fact, it’s about as basic as it gets. And in this case, that’s a good thing. Maybe I’ll make some fancy coleslaw some other time, but today definitely calls for granny’s simple version.



3-4 c. green cabbage, shredded

1 c. carrots, shredded

Poppy seeds, for topping


½ c. mayonnaise

1 Tbsp. white vinegar

2 tsp. apple cider vinegar

2 tsp. Honey

Salt and pepper

Combine dressing ingredients in a bowl and whisk to combine. Place the cabbage and carrots into a large serving bowl. Mix the dressing into the veggies and refrigerate for 30-60 minutes before serving. Top with poppy seeds, if desired. Enjoy!
