    How to make coleslaw:

    • Save time by purchasing a packaged coleslaw mix. Some are shredded cabbage only, others are a blend of green and red cabbage with shredded carrots. Inspect the bag well for any browning before purchasing and of course, check the bagged date.
    • Coleslaw dressing is crucial, and saving time is key. Litehouse Coleslaw Dressing is made with freshly-made mayonnaise, resulting in a thick and creamy dressing that won’t get watery after mixing. It is also sold cold, so your homemade coleslaw won’t require chilling time, making it truly mix and serve. Sweet and tangy, you just can’t go wrong!

    • Mix-ins are what make this the best coleslaw recipe. Sweet raisins and crunchy almonds elevate the traditional coleslaw recipe. Other additions can include dried cranberries or cherries, thinly sliced bell pepper, corn or even spices like cayenne, cardamom or tarragon. Poppy seeds are also a popular favorite.
    • Coleslaw is best served chilled, so if you are making ahead, refrigerate until ready to plate. If serving at a party or BBQ, set the bowl of coleslaw inside a larger bowl filled with ice cubes to maintain the integrity of your slaw.

    Recipe Notes

    If you can’t find a bag of pre-cut cabbage with both green and red and carrots, visit your grocers salad bar. They commonly had shredded red cabbage and carrots that you can buy and toss with your bagged cabbage. One 14 ounce bag of cabbage equals one large head of fresh cabbage, if you prefer to shred it yourself.
