Slaw Dressing (Tangy)

"This is not a mayo type's a vinegar, mustard tangy dressing with just a bit of sweetness. You can always add more sugar if you like it sweeter :D. I used this on packaged dry coleslaw mix (about 3-4 cups) from the grocers but it is delicious over Trader Joe's Healthy 8 Chopped Veggie Mix. Hope you enjoy it. My husband thought this would be delicious on fish tacos also!"

  • Mix all ingredients except oil. I just add a small amout of salt and pepper at this point, you can always add more later if you feel it needs it. Gradually whisk the oil in with the others until it appears to be completely incorporated (no oil sitting on the top of the dressing mix).
  • Put your dry coleslaw mix (your favorite) in a bowl large enough to mix with the dressing. I like to use a bowl that has a sealable lid for marinating. Add dressing a little at a time and toss with the dry coleslaw mix until completely used.
  • Let marinate in the refrigerator at least an hour or overnight. Enjoy. (Cookiing time is the marinating time.).

  1. We love this dressing so much I've made it twice in a couple of weeks time! I didn't have stone ground mustard so I used grey poupon and also added a little soy sauce that brought it over the top. Thanks!!
  2. I wasn't sure exactly what to expect with this slaw dressing. The 2 tablespoons of Tabasco sauce made me curious to try it. I thought the hot sauce might make it too hot but it wasn't. It had a very slight kick but doesn't burn your mouth at all. It made a nice change from the usual cole slaw dressing. I'm not a big fan of cole slaw, but I did enjoy this version. Made for PAC Spring 2012.


I never really thought too much about cooking as I was growing up. I just learned the dishes my mother prepared and I did the occasional baking as usual. These days however, I enjoy cooking and I really like trying new recipes and tweaking them for my family and their tastes (and mine). My wonderful sister in law told me about this website and I have been "hooked" ever since. My son now swears I never fix the same thing twice...even if they like it! I just have too many new recipes I want to try, so I forget about the ones I have tried and they like. We enjoy going camping, so the easy, quick recipes that I can fix ahead or do at the campsite thrill me. I love the variety of recipes from all the members and I like to read the reviews (the nice ones) and get ideas to use for my family. I won't give a recipe I try a bad rating..period. Just because it doesn't fit my family doesn't mean it's not a good recipe for someone else. I only rate the ones we like, so you are safe from criticism from me!
