    My Private Note



    Units: US | Metric


    • 2 cups of a good mayonnaise (I use Hellmans)
    • 1 tablespoon sugar
    • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
    • 1 tablespoon grated onion (I sometimes use 1/2 tablespoon of dry onion)
    • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
    • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
    • 1/2 tablespoon prepared horseradish (optional)


    1. 1
      Mix all the ingredients for the dressing together and set aside.
    2. 2
      Shred the cabbage and carrot; I then sometimes take a hand chopper and chop it up a little more as I like it a little finer.
    3. 3
      Add the dressing to the cabbage and carrots till you have the moisture that you like--it tightens up a little as it sits.
    4. 4
      Refrigerate for about 2 hours to blend the flavors.
    5. 5

      Mimi, This dressing is outstanding. Love the horseradish kick! Made with some pre-packed coleslaw mix. Delish! Thanks for posting this keeper!

      I cut this down to four servings and left out the optional horseradish, but otherwise made the recipe as directed. I found that all of the dressing was needed for the consistency of cole slaw I wanted. It was good enough, just nothing that made me sit up and go "wow!"
