My Favorite Cole Slaw

I have always been very picky about cole slaw. I don't like it with a lot of vinegar and I don't like it with horseradish. Just never liked that taste. So I created my own version of cole slaw years ago and now I'm sharing it with you.
This goes really great with my Southern Fried Catfish or Fried Chicken.

Mary Jane's Favorite Cole Slaw

1 bag cole slaw mix (or greate your own cabbage - maybe 4 cups?)
2/3 cup Hellmans Mayonnaise (no substitute)
2/3 cup sour cream (not fat free!)
1- 2 tsp apple cigar vinegar
3 - 4 tsps sugar (or to taste)
A little salt
Optimal: for a change, sometimes I add chopped sweet Vidalia onion and/or chopped sweet green pepper

Mix ingredients for sauce in bowl, and allow sugar to dissolve. Then add to cole slaw mix. Add salt to taste. You may need more sauce, depending on how much cabbage you have. You don't want it to be too dry, but you don't want it overpowered with sauce either. I probably make more sauce than this, but I never measure the ingredients. It is very  important though to have the same amount mayo as you do sour cream. 


  1. I'm like you and I am very picky about my cole slaw. This recipe sounds so good! I have never thought about putting sour cream in it. Otherwise your recipe is close to how I make my own cole slaw. I am going to try your recipe soon!

    1. Thank you so much for commenting! I don't think people see my blog much!

  2. This sounds great. I make my own sauce with Hellman’s Mayo, Apple Vinegar, sugar, and a little milk. Sometimes I add sweet relish to it but not much.
