Mama’s Coleslaw

I’m really surprised that I haven’t shared this sooner! Tonight is the Alabama vs. Clemson game and my dad asked for bbq chicken, coleslaw, and baked beans. Normally if I need one our recipes I will come to my blog and do a search for it. But alas, I didn’t find it. So here goes! 


Mama’s Coleslaw

1 cup mayonnaise

1/2 cup sour cream

3–4 Tblsp pickle juice, vinegar, or lemon juice

2 tsp sugar

1/2–1 tsp dry mustard

1/4–1/2 tsp paprika

1/2–1 tsp salt

1/4 tsp black pepper

1/2 tsp celery seed

1 lb tri–color shredded cabbage mix

Combine the first 9 ingredients with a whisk in a large bowl. Adjust seasonings if needed and stir in cabbage mix. Cover with foil or plastic wrap. Chill until ready to serve. 

For this recipe it is best to use the smaller measurements of seasonings at first, this way you can adjust after it has sat for a while. Make this the day before and all the flavors will blend together more thoroughly. My mom and sister-in-law did an amazing job coming up with this recipe, lots of taste testing, collaberation, and the final product is a creamy  slaw  that is great with any grilled food and fried chicken! You can make this slaw recipe as sweet or savory as you like, and if you decide to use a sweet pickle juice take care to reduce the amount of sugar. 

Hope you all enjoy and have a blessed day!
