This perfectly creamy, crunchy coleslaw is delicious with grilled burgers, hot dogs or any type of bbq. For a more colorful slaw, add red cabbage to the mix.

  1. 1 cup mayonnaise
  2. 3 tablespoons cider vinegar
  3. 1 tablespoon whole grain mustard
  4. 3/4 teaspoon celery seeds
  5. Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
  6. One 2 1/2-pound head of green cabbage-quartered, cored and shredded (12 cups)
  7. 2 carrots, coarsely shredded
  1. In a very large bowl, whisk the mayonnaise with the vinegar, mustard and celery seeds and season with salt and pepper. Add the cabbage and carrots and toss to coat thoroughly. Refrigerate until slightly chilled, about 30 minutes. Toss the coleslaw again and serve.
Make Ahead The coleslaw can be refrigerated for up to 2 days.
