Light and Tangy Cole Slaw

I found this cole slaw recipe on Epicurious that looked and sounded fantastic.  I adapted it a bit to work with what ingredients I had on hand and it turned out really delicious.  I loved the sweet and tangy sauce on the crunchy cabbage and carrots.  It was wonderful plain and when served on sandwiches.  It’s quick, simple and so tasty!  This will be my new “go to” slaw recipe.

Toss the cabbage, carrots, purple cabbage, parsley, and green onions together in a bowl.

In a smaller bowl, combine the vinegar, lemon juice, mayonnaise, sour cream, Dijon, sugar, honey, celery salt, sea salt, and freshly cracked pepper, to taste.  Whisk until well combined.  Pour the dressing over the salad and toss until evenly coated.

    Yum, I love this recipe, Pam. My mother used to make something similar and add a few raisins for sweetness. I have half a head of cabbage that needs to be put to good use – thanks for this recipe.

    It’s hard to find a good creamy cole slaw recipe that still has that tangy element. My favourite application for cole slaw is to pile it on top of pulled pork on a crusty bun.

    I just cannot get myself to like mayo but I’m sure with a greek yogurt substitution, I would love this!
