- 1 small cabbage, finely shredded
- 2 large carrots, grated
- 1/2 cup mayonnaise
- 1/4 cup granulated sugar
- 2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
- 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
- 1/2 teaspoon celery seed
- Salt and pepper to taste
- 1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley (optional, for garnish)
- In a large mixing bowl, combine the finely shredded cabbage and grated carrots. You can also buy pre-shredded coleslaw mix if you prefer to save time.
- In a separate bowl, whisk together the mayonnaise, granulated sugar, apple cider vinegar, Dijon mustard, and celery seed. Mix until the sugar is fully dissolved, and the dressing is smooth.
- Pour the dressing over the cabbage and carrot mixture.
- Toss the vegetables with the dressing until they are well coated. Make sure all the veggies are evenly coated with the sweet dressing.
- Season with salt and pepper to taste. Start with a pinch of each and adjust to your liking.
- Cover the bowl and refrigerate the slaw for at least an hour before serving. This allows the flavors to meld, and the slaw will become even tastier.
- Before serving, garnish with chopped fresh parsley for a pop of color and added freshness (optional).
- Serve your Sweet Restaurant Slaw as a side dish with your favorite meals, such as burgers, sandwiches, BBQ, or fried chicken.
Enjoy this sweet and tangy coleslaw that’s reminiscent of the kind you might find in a restaurant!
