Classic Coleslaw

Classic Coleslaw


  • 1 cup Light Sour Cream
  • 1/2 cup Mayonnaise
  • 1/4 cup White Wine Vinegar
  • 2 tbsp Sugar
  • 1 tsp Salt
  • 1/2 Small Green Cabbage shredded
  • 1/2 Small Red Cabbage shredded
  • 4 Medium Celery Stalks sliced diagonally
  • 2 Medium Carrots coarsely grated


  • In a bowl, mix together sour cream, mayonnaise, vinegar, sugar and salt until thoroughly combined. Set aside.
  • In a large mixing bowl, combine the two cabbages, celery and carrot. Add dressing and toss through. Cover and refrigerate for two hours or until chilled.


  • A food processor with a shredding blade will make this the fastest salad in the world to make. But if you don't have such an appliance, a good kitchen knife will do just as good a job, though a little slower!
  • This is a salad that actually benefits from sitting around soaking in the dressing. Coleslaw the next day is almost always better than same-day coleslaw.
  • Don't be concerned if the dressing goes pink after a couple of hours it's just the colour from the red cabbage seeping out.
  • There's a reason that coleslaw is considered a classic salad as not only does it taste fantastic, is full of very-good-for-you cabbage, and it goes with everything! Perfect with barbecued meat!
