Full Answer

To make Food.com's easy coleslaw dressing, start by measuring preparing a clean non-metal, non-reactive mixing bowl. Add 1 cup of regular mayonnaise, or use low-fat if preferred. Whisk in 2 tablespoons of sugar, Splenda or your choice of sugar substitute. Add 2 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar, 2 teaspoons of black pepper and 1/2 teaspoon of salt. Finish the mix with 1/4 teaspoon of dry mustard and 1/8 teaspoon of celery seeds. Continue to whisk the ingredients together until all of the sugar or sweetener is dissolved.

When the coleslaw dressing is complete, you can add a mix of shredded cabbage. Add additional vegetables, such as diced white or green onions or carrots. A chopped apple is also a good addition for coleslaw mix. Whatever combination, make a total of about 5 cups of coleslaw vegetable mix to properly match this dressing recipe, which makes about five servings for the final product. After tossing the dressing and veggie mix together, refrigerate and allow at least four hours for the slaw to chill.
