My Coleslaw Recipe is More Tempting Than Chocolate

Best Darn Coleslaw Recipe in the World

There’s nothing better than good ole Southern coleslaw on a hot afternoon. It makes the best snack and pick me upper and lets be honest, it’s better for us than sweet treats which would be my second choice. I’ve been told that I make the best darn coleslaw in the world so I’m going to own that title. I don’t know how I ended up perfecting my recipe, but I did. It’s perfect and ready for you to try. Before I share, let me just say that Paula Dean is my hero. I’ve tried the lady’s coleslaw and I admit that it’s pretty good (that’s putting it mildly). I try to use as many of her recipes as possible because they are the absolute best. However, when it comes to my coleslaw, Paula Dean, you’ve got a rival. In fact, my coleslaw recipe is more tempting than chocolate. I’d even go so far as to say that you could save your marriage using my coleslaw recipe (because if this don’t make you pucker up, nothing will). In all seriousness, don’t quote me on that, lol. I just know some crazy person is going to go ballistic on me because that didn’t work…

You can make the coleslaw green or purple or use both colors in one dish. You can usually get a purple head for $1 at Walmart. I stick to green when it’s just for adults but for the kids, it’s much easier to get them to eat “Barney Food” which they love more than ice cream, than it is to get them to eat coleslaw which they absolutely won’t eat. Don’t even try to touch that. If you’re a mom/grandma/aunt/sitter… you get it.

We like our cabbage chopped up really well so I use my (amazon associate link as follows) food processor. This takes awhile because I haven’t invested in a bigger one yet.

Chop 1 head of cabbage, green or purple, one or the other or 1/2 each or however you want to mix it up, a handful of baby carrots and 1/2 onion.

  1. I have always been a big fan of coleslaw but unfortunately I am unable to eat it anymore due to medical issues. I would have loved to try this recipe but my mom still eats it and she loves it too, I will have to share with her!

    1. It can be time consuming to make. I need to invest in a larger food processor because we like our cabbage chopped small and it takes a good while in my small processor. It’s worth it though.

  2. This looks really good! I’m not a huge cole slaw fan but this sounds nice and tangy with the addition of the apple cider vinegar!

  3. Ooh, I may have to see if my boyfriend would want to try this instead of the usual coleslaw. I might be a nice change of pace and it would be easy to swap ingredients.

    1. If you try it, please tell me how you like it. I’d love some feedback on it besides friends and family who beg me to make it for them lol. I don’t know if they are just being kind or if it’s all that.

  4. This does sound pretty darn amazing. My daughter and I are huge coleslaw fans, so I’m going to have to give it a try. But….I’m not sure what dill relish is. Is it chopped up dill pickles? Or is it the herb? I’m thinking I see pickles in the finished photo, but I want to make sure.

  5. Everyone makes coleslaw so differently. I have never had it with sour cream it. I grew up with my grandmother using Dukes mayo for it, but I am willing to give this recipe a try!
