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

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 2 quarts finely shredded green cabbage
  • 1 cup shredded carrot

  • 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 12 teaspoons salt
  • 12 teaspoon paprika
  • 12 tablespoon prepared horseradish (optional)


  1. Mix all the ingredients for the dressing together and set aside.
  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. 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. Refrigerate for about 2 hours to blend the flavors.
  5. Enjoy!
