This easy coleslaw recipe really is the best! The creamy, savory dressing and crunchy veggies make it totally irresistible.


  • 1/2 head green cabbage, enough for 4 cups shredded*
  • 1/2 head red cabbage, enough for 4 cups shredded
  • 1 carrot, enough for 1 cup shredded
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise (or vegan mayo)
  • 2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried dill
  • 1/2 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • Fresh ground pepper


  1. Shred the cabbage.
  2. Shred the carrot, using a grater or a handheld julienne shredder.
  3. Make the coleslaw dressing: In a medium bowl, whisk together the mayonnaise, apple cider vinegar, maple syrup, dill, chili powder, and salt. Keep whisking after the mayo gets lumpy, until the mixture comes to a creamy consistency.
  4. Mix the cabbage, carrots and coleslaw dressing together and serve immediately, or refrigerate until serving. (The coleslaw is best fresh, but can be stored refrigerated for up to 1 day.)


*Note: this equates to about 20 ounces of vegetables or about 1.5 pounds of bagged coleslaw mix
