“My grandma never cooked from recipes or even owned a cookbook. This is the one and only written recipe that anyone ever knew her to use, and it is delicious. Southern ladies know their coleslaw.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Mix all ingredients in large bowl. Chill till ready to serve. Serves 10-12.
  2. Note: I slightly change the amounts of ingredients for my personal preference and a tarter flavor. I use ½ medium sweet Vidalia onion instead of 1 medium onion and ¼ cup apple cider vinegar instead of ¼ cup white vinegar. Also, I increase other ingredients as follows: 2 carrots, ½ teaspoon black pepper, ¾ cup sweet pickle juice, 1 ½ cups of full fat mayonnaise. I strongly recommend using only full fat mayonnaise and not light mayonnaise because the acid in the pickle juice and vinegar break down the light mayonnaise into a watery consistency which is not desirable.
