We all love this coleslaw recipe. For a fast side to a barbecue or a take along dish, you can't beat it. You can even use the prepackaged coleslaw mix if you are in a hurry or don't have a food processor. Mona likes the apples, so that is how we usually have it when she comes over.


1 head of green cabbage (Can use ¾ green and ¼ purple)
2 large carrots
1 cup mayonnaise (Duke’s)
½ cup sugar
2 tsp red wine vinegar
1 tsp yellow mustard
1 tsp ground celery seed


Serves a crowd. Just right for potluck or a small barbecue.

  1.  Cut carrots cabbage into chunks and pulse in food processor to desired consistency. I like mine pretty fine.
  2. Ž Mix remaining ingredients and pour over cabbage/carrot mixture and mix well.
  3.  Refrigerate until ready to serve.


Decrease sugar to a ¼ cup and add 2 apples cut up fine for some extra crunch.
Add raisins and walnuts, or blue cheese crumbles.
