Easy Cole Slaw

We celebrate birthdays with a potluck luncheon once a month at my office.  I never know what to make.  As much as I love to cook, I have a hard time deciding what to bring.  We usually have tons of desserts (which I LOVE) so I try to bring something other than sweets.  We also eat the leftovers at work until every last morsel is gone so we like something that is good the next day.

I decided to bring Easy Cole Slaw for today's meal.  Since I get home from work at nearly 6PM every night and have to leave the house by 7AM, I find very little prep time for making a potluck dish so this Easy Cole Slaw was perfectly easy, simple, and frugal.  I mixed the dressing last night in mere seconds and this morning dumped my cole slaw mix in a bowl, chopped some onion, and stirred it together.

I think this will be a perfect recipe to have handy these last days during Lent.  Our town is predominantly Catholic and there are lots of fish fries this time of year.  This slaw would be great for fish night at your house.  Try my Baked "Fried" Fish as a healthier option for eating your favorite fish, make some Easy Cole Slaw, and you have a feast!

(I have posted this recipe before but it deserves reposting - with a picture this time!  Keep in mind that my house is dark when I leave for work so the lighting is a little pitiful in this picture... ;)  )

Here's how I make Easy Cole Slaw AT HOME MY WAY:

Easy Cole Slaw

Dressing Ingredients:
  • 1 cup mayo/Miracle Whip (I had generic mayo this morning.)
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 4 Tablespoons white/cider vinegar (I had cider vinegar)
Remaining Ingredients:

  • 1 bag cole slaw mix or about 6 cups shredded cabbage
  • 1/4 of a white/yellow/purple onion, chopped fine

Mix the ingredients for the dressing in a small bowl. 

Pour the cole slaw cabbage mix into a medium bowl.  Add chopped onion.  Stir.  Pour over the dressing.  Stir well.  Cover and place in the refrigerator for at least 1 hour before serving.  The slaw will compact as the vegetables soften with the dressing.
