Onion-Carrot Ranch Slaw

Recipe by Kittencalrecipezazz

Use sweet onions like Vidalia for this only. You will love this on a grilled jumbo hot dog or a grilled burger! This complete recipe can be doubled, use your own favorite brand of prepared Ranch dressing for this, I have made this using creamy cucumber dressing also or use Ranch Peppercorn dressing!

This was very tasty. I don't think I used as much ranch dressing as was indicated as I just used enough to coat the carrots and onions. Easy to make and a bit different than the usual slaw.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 4 large sweet onions (sliced very thin)
  • 2 medium carrots, peeled and coarsley shredded (squeeze out any moisture with hands)
  • 2 cups prepared ranch dressing (or enough to cover)
  • 12 cup white vinegar
  • 12 cup water
  • 12 teaspoon kosher salt
  • black pepper (I use about 1/2 teaspoon for a single recipe, you can use more!)


  1. Slice the onions into paper thin "half moons" place in a large glass bowl.
  2. Add in the shredded carrots, then add in the kosher salt with black pepper; toss to combine.
  3. In a small bowl mix together the vinegar and water; pour over the onion/carrot mixture; toss well to combine; let sit out at room temperature for 45-60 minutes.
  4. Drain off the liquid from the onion/carrot mixture then dry on paper towels.
  5. Place back in a clean dry bowl and add in prepared Ranch dressing; mix adding in more dressing if desired to achieve desired taste and consistancy.
  6. Season with more salt and pepper to taste.
