Simple yet effective. This recipe is enough for several batches of cole slaw.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 34 cup sugar
  • 34 cup vinegar
  • 23 cup oil
  • 1 teaspoon garlic salt
  • 1 teaspoon celery seed
  • 1 teaspoon additional salt (optional ( make to your own taste)
  • 1 small onion, pureed


  1. In food processor or with grater,chop the onion so fine it is almost liquefied.
  2. Mix in other ingredients with the ground up onion and using a food processor emulsify the dressing. Dressing, can, however, simply be mixed using a wire whisk in the traditional way.
  3. Add to your favorite cole slaw recipe.

This was very, very sweet. In fact, I couldn't taste much else besides the sugar. Sorry for the negative review.

I adjusted this recipe for 2 people and used rice vinegar as another reviewer suggested. Excellent! It is a refreshing change from mayo.

I was so happy to find this dressing for coleslaw. I used 3/4 rice vinegar since you did not mention what type of vinegar to use in your recipe. This taste so much lighter than all the recipes I found that call for Mayonise. I will send this recipe to my friends and family that like coleslaw. Thanks again! Bonnie
