Southern Bookclub Coleslaw

Good Morning and happy Wednesday! I don’t know about you, but for me this week is just dragging by at a snail’s pace! To break up that monotony I thought I’d share my southern book club coleslaw recipe adapted from a couple of different ones that I found online. I’m not the best at measuring ingredients, especially for savory items, but I did my best to approximate.


  • 2 bags shredded coleslaw mix
  • 1/2 small jar miracle whip (approx 1 cup)
  • 1 tbsp + 1 tsp distilled white vinegar
  • 1/4 cup granulated white sugar
  • pinch of salt (approx 1/4 tsp)
  • pinch mustard powder (approx 1/4 tsp)


1) Gather all ingredients, large mixing bowl, spoon or spatula.
2) Add miracle whip, vinegar, sugar, salt, mustard powder to bowl.
3) Stir until combined.
4) Add coleslaw mix to sauce and stir to coat.

This recipe is best made a few hours to one day in advance of when you plan to eat it so that the flavors have time to meld. Store covered in the refrigerator for 3-4 days. As with any potluck type item please don’t let it sit out too long on a buffet without being set in a bowl of ice; trust me on this one.
