Ingredients

  • 14 oz bagged coleslaw mix
  • ½ medium red onion thinly sliced
  • ¾ cup mayonnaise
  • 3 Tbsp red wine vinegar
  • 2 Tbsp granulated sugar
  • ½ tsp Kosher salt
  • pinch of freshly ground black pepper

Instructions

  • Combine in a bowl. Place bagged coleslaw mix in a large bowl, then add ½ a thinly sliced red onion, ¾ cup mayonnaise, 3 Tbsp red wine vinegar, 2 Tbsp granulated sugar, ½ tsp Kosher salt, and a couple pinches of black pepper. Use tongs to thoroughly toss.
  • Refrigerate until needed, at least 1 hour (though 2 or 3 hours is better).

Notes

  • Use store-bought coleslaw mix or chopped cabbage! It's easy, it's uniform in size, and you get a little of everything (red cabbage, green cabbage, and carrots).
  • Refrigerate for at least 1 hour! 2 hours is even better! You can make this 1 day in advance if you want to prep ahead!
  • Don't add too much mayonnaise! 
  • Does not freeze well because of the mayonnaise -- best enjoyed fresh!
