Skip the store-bought stuff! If you are making coleslaw this Homemade Coleslaw Dressing Recipe is one of the best around! Plus its dairy free!
Backyard BBQ’s are a staple at my house. My husband loves to grill dinner for us. Many times a week I can look out the backdoor and see him at the grill, which leaves me in charge of the sides. Who can complain? I love being in charge of only the sides. The side dishes are the icing on the cake. Of course, coleslaw comes naturally with anything grilled and my Homemade Coleslaw Dressing is one of the best!
I always make our own coleslaw dressing. I have never bought store bought coleslaw dressing. Not that I think it is bad, it is just so much easier and cheaper to whip up a bowl of dressing and grab a bag of coleslaw mix at the grocery store. For a couple of dollars, I have a family size portion of coleslaw that tastes better than any pre-made coleslaw you can ever buy.
Plus it is important for us to make sure things are dairy free and gluten free for my kids’ food allergies. This best way to do that is to prepare a lot of items like coleslaw ourselves at home. The added benefit is we know what is in our food, and it really just tastes so much better than anything you can buy.
Homemade Coleslaw Dressing Recipe
- 1 1/4 Cup Mayo
- 1 TBSP Sugar
- 1/4 cup pineapple juice
- 1/4 teaspoon celery salt
- 1 - 1 1/2 TBSP Apple Cider Vinegar
- dash of pepper
- Whisk all ingredients together, and pour over 1 bag of coleslaw mix.
- Stir together and allow to sit atleast 5 minutes before serving.
Whisk together all of the ingredients. I usually buy a small 8 oz can of pineapple tidbits for the juice. Then the kids love to eat the pineapple bits. If you don’t want the pineapple right now make some of these Tropical Popsicles for the win!
Pour the dressing over a bag of shredded coleslaw. Allow to sit a few minutes and serve.
