I’ve been making this best creamy coleslaw recipe for friends and family for so many years I’ve lost count!


In fact, when I first started to make it, I was working in my parents’ catering business.  And everyone of those banquets needed a ton of coleslaw!  Back then we didn’t use a food processor – we would ask our wholesaler to shred the cabbage and carrots for us and we would then chop it much more finely, with all of the onion. By. Hand.

When I first started making coleslaw and taking it to family dinners, I would use a hand grater, but when my sweet mother-in-law found out, she went right out and bought a small food processor for me.  I was overcome with the gift, but her explanation was simple.  “This is the best creamy coleslaw recipe I have ever tasted, and if I want it every time you come for dinner, then I need to know it isn’t such a chore for you to make.”  Isn’t that sweet? 🙂

Now you know I used that little food processor for a very long time, it was a Cuisinart, I think, and it just gave up the ghost and stopped working a couple of months ago.  I used it for everything from delicious flaky pie crust to chopping up my coleslaw veggies.

So I had to go shopping for a new one.  After researching the market, the best deal I could find was on Amazon.  If you can get one for under $70, then grab it, because that’s a great deal.  I looked at these two and chose the Cuisinart based on experience.

So let’s get started and make Your Best Creamy Coleslaw Recipe!

One medium sized head of green cabbage

2-3 small cooking onions

2-3 medium carrots

1 1/2 cups mayonnaise or your favorite salad dressing

2 tbsp. sugar

Salt and pepper

Pinch of paprika

 

Preparation: (Prep time – 30 minutes)

Cut the cabbage into chunks and shred in your food processor – but pulse only, so that you get a coarse grind.

Chop the onion and the carrots in the food processor as well, chopping both finely.

Place into a large mixing bowl, add the sugar, salt, pepper, paprika and mayonnaise and blend well.

Sprinkle with paprika and place in refrigerator until ready to serve.

Enjoy!
