Best Cole Slaw Recipe Ever

Even if you are not a big fan of cole slaw, you will love this recipe... trust me! It is one my Mom made up, so in our family we just call it "Granny's Cole Slaw."  You will need:

  • 1 package of cole slaw
  • 2 Apples (whatever variety you like - I've used Granny Smith, Pink Lady, Jazz)
  • Dried cranberries
Dump your cole slaw into a big bowl. Add dried cranberries.... just eyeball it, however much you like! I peel my apples, then use an apple corer to get rid of the core and it makes nice even pieces. Then thinly slice up the apple pieces into the cole slaw.

In another bowl, whisk together the following ingredients:

  • 2 tbsp. sour cream
  • 1 1/2 tbsp. mayonnaise
  • 1/4 tsp. celery seed
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • a pinch of salt
  • a couple dashes of cider vinegar
Thin this mixture out with a little bit of milk... you don't want it too runny! Pour over your cole slaw and mix well, then keep refrigerated. I usually make this up in the early afternoon and serve it with dinner that night to allow time for the flavors to blend.

I made some yesterday and served it with BBQ chicken, corn and wheat rolls... yummy!

Here is the corer that I use (think I got mine at the dollar store and it works great).

I hope you try this... it really is delicious. Have a great weekend everyone.


  1. MMMM! Sounds delicious. (Say did you know your title comes up Sunflowerz Croch? instead of Crochet.

  2. Thanks Bev, I did not know it was doing that...hopefully I fixed it!

  3. Hi Sandy, just a little dig for you- Sarah L's "wooleaters square" is actually an old pattern called Catherine's wheel..... not really her pattern at all. I looked up the old pattern and it's exactly the same. How do ya like that?? LOL There's also a "new" reproduction of the pattern in one of the newer crochet magazines out this month. Forgot if it was Crochet! or Crochet Today.

  4. All better now. I love it!

  5. YUM! I love recipes like this - thanks for sharing!!

  6. Thankyou so much for the recipe, with summer coming in for us it will go down a treat...
    And just to let you know, the wooleater rug is also know as, Hungarian reversable rug, and honey comb.......and in the book Mon Tricot, Stitches Patterns it is called, Harlequin stitch... have a great day :))

  7. Mmmmm, that sounds yummy - I'm going to have to try that. I love cabbage and combining apples with cabbage...I enjoy raw veggies and have been looking for a good cole slaw dressing.

    Have a lovely day and a wonderful week ahead!

    With love,
    Doris and Gizzy :-)

  8. This sounds great. I'm going to make it this coming weekend for a family dinner here. Thanks for sharing!
